Events & Meetings

Since 1989 the representatives of a growing number of European Eye Banks have met each year. The purpose of these meetings is to exchange information and ideas, to promote the procurement and supply of human eye tissue for therapeutic purposes, to improve and adapt storage methods, and to encourage the implementation of standard operating procedures.

Any Eye Bank who is interested in hosting an EEBA Annual Meeting is very welcome to send their application to the EEBA Secretariat

To this end, in order to help Eye Banks in the organization of future Meetings, a number of past organizers have gathered their ideas and experiences in a Guide for future EEBA meetings.

Through the Andrew Tullo Travel Grant Scheme, the European Eye Bank Association is able to offer two (2) travel grants to enable technical and scientific staff from the eye-banking community to attend the EEBA Annual Meeting. Details of how to apply for these grants can be found here.
