So, what are our strategic objectives for 2019 ?
scholarships distributed thanks to Eli Lilly, a total of 500,000€ given to 10 projects by the Project Proposal and Review Committee and 5 Research Fellowships given to young European colleagues for strengthening their research curriculum in a different country. Internally, we have worked on aligning our actions with strategic priorities including the simplification of our Statutes and internal rules to make us more agile in our activities and reduce bureaucracy. This work is important to adapt to the rapid changes in healthcare and dissemination of knowledge. These successful outcomes could not have been achieved without the full dedication of the 34 employees of the EADV in Lugano and Brussels, the continuous support and guidance of the EADV Board and Executive Committee and the voluntary contribution of the various EADV Committees and Task Forces. With more than 7,000 members from 110 different countries, theEADV truly represents one of the most important scientific societies of our specialty worldwide. Our diversity is one of our key strengths allowing to bring people from different cultures and backgrounds throughout theworld to discuss the future of skin disease management.

Spring Symposium Budva, May 2018
The event attracted almost 1200 participants who learnt about the latest developments in hair disorders, dermoscopy, non-melanoma skin cancers and eczema among other interesting topics.

EADV School The aim of the EADV School is to raise standards of dermatology, promote a sense of community and encourage collaboration and exchange by offering trainee dermato-venereologists and practicing dermato-venereologists high quality theoretical and practical training with an emphasis on best practice to benefit patients and physicians alike.
29 courses around Europe
540 participants fromaround theworld
The EADV is to be applauded for the initiative in running Dermatology training courses for Registrars and Specialists. It is an excellent way to learn directly from the experts in every field. They run courses on many interesting subjects like paediatric dermatology, skin surgery, Mohs, nail surgery, lasers and others. I attended the Cryosurgery course in April 18 in Barcelona. It was very well organized by Dr Paola Pasqualli and her team of expert Dermatologists in a very sleek private clinic. I was able to re-learn the basic facts of cryosurgery, compare and contrast the different approaches
Dr Emilia Duarte Williamson
to treating large skin cancers, keloids and benign skin lesions. I’ve also learnt practical tips for applying liquid nitrogen directly to patients, using different tools and was able to practice also on pig skin. Despite my 20 years experience working as a Dermatologist, I found it informative and, in some instances, innovative. These were very enjoyable 2 days, with a mix of hard work, intellectual stimulation and social activities where I got to meet and socialise with other European colleagues. Highly recommended. ”

The Imrich Sarkany Non-European Memorial Scholarship allowed me, besides acquiring knowledge and new contacts, to have an intriguing glimpse in what it means and what it takes to be a Dermatologist in Europe. It demands, I dare to say, a very different approach to the whole profession than in my homeland, Brazil . Moreover it was a great recognition for all the effort dedicated through the years to my research career ” .

Why I joined the EADV: my colleagues told me that it's worth it. I joined because of the access to JEADV , the possibility of participation in different resident courses, the fees for the congresses, and the great feeling that I could be a part of a European association of Dermatology. ”

Finances In its 30 years of existence, the EADV has reached a solid financial position. The basis of the income of the Academy is the annual congress organized every autumn. Due to a large number of paying participants, the congress’s income is sufficient to cover the costs of the congress , even without the support of the sponsors and leasing spaces to exhibitors. In terms of our office, in the last decade, the organization has grown from a small group of people to a team of nearly 40 employees divided in two offices in Lugano and Brussels. To maintain this organization, a fixed amount of €-4 million is necessary. In addition, the Academy spends most of its extra income on educational activities like courses and scientific Conservative budgeting has proven to contribute to the financial success of the Academy. Savings are divided under different banks and type of savings; all with a very low volatility. With the high solvability the Academy has insured themselves for difficult times. As public and governmental opinions are slowly changing regarding restrictions on cooperation between nonprofit medical organizations such as the EADV and commercial partners, the Academy is financially prepared to overcome these possible changes and adapt their strategy accordingly. In conclusion the EADV has a conservative, but successful, financial strategy and position allowing it to finance all their activities from their own sources. Spending is dedicated to education in dermatology . projects. Moreover, a journal, the JEADV , is published under the full responsibility of the EADV. Looking at the balance sheet, the EADV has a solid liquidity and solvability position .
Martino Neumann , Treasurer EADV
“ I was impressed by the multiple possibilities the EADV Congress offered. I tried to attend especially sessions with uncommon diseases, which are not often found on North Africa. I enjoyed the social events very much including the opening and, even more, the scholarship ceremony, where I had the opportunity to meet and talk to high class dermatologists from all over the world. I met colleagues from the U. S, Israel and Germany, and had
contact with other scholarship winners (John Stratigos Memorial) from Morocco and Tunisia, which was very inspiring ”
