The EAU welcomes journalists to the 33rd Annual EAU Congress. We recognise that media – print, online and broadcast – are vehicles of public information and that the media have an important role and community responsibility to keep the public informed.

We are happy to cooperate in providing accurate and appropriate information while protecting the confidentiality of our members. We will do what we can to assist the media, but we need to ask that, in return, journalists work with the EAU to ensure good practice and high ethical standards. The EAU’s media registration and press policies provide news editors, reporters, health and medical writers with information about the rules and regulations regarding attendance and coverage of the 33rd Annual EAU Congress.

To review your eligibility and the entitlements visit the Press Registration page. Any questions regarding these press policies may be directed to EAU Press Office.
