Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Why are we participating in professional conferences and meetings? To learn, to be inspired, to start and to facilitate cooperation, to meet old friends and to get new friends and to be part of an international network in laboratory medicine. These are some of the reasons why you should go to EuroMedLab in Athens 2017. Big meetings like the EuroMedLab meetings will give you an overview of what is going on in laboratory medicine, what is new and what is important for the future and what we should stop do- ing. In addition, the EuroMedLab conferences have satel- lite meetings where you can penetrate topics that you are interesting in. EFLM - the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine welcomes especially its 40 member societies, representing more than 22.000 specialist in laboratory medicine, to this event. EFLM wants to stimulate the scientific, professional and clinical aspects of laboratory medicine in Europe. I do look for- ward to seeing you during EuroMedLab Athens 2017.
