During the 10’th European Craniofacial Congress in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2015, the European
Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association (ECPCA) was founded. This association will consist
of all national associations in Europe. The ECPCA will promote and support the management of
cleft lip and palate deformities, and related craniofacial anomalies in Europe by organizing a
multi-disciplinary European Congress once every four years for dissemination of experience
and knowledge in this field.
Further details on this event can be foundhere.
On behalf of my colleagues in Edinburgh and the CFSGBI, I warmly invite you to join us in July 2021, for the 14th International Cleft Congress.
Our custom built conference venue, the EICC, is surrounded by a range of hotels, and cafes, in the very heart of Edinburgh – a short walk from many famous tourist sites, such as Edinburgh Castle and the Queen’s Palace at Holyrood. Our long summer days leave plenty of time to explore, with 17 hours of daylight.
We have much to learn from each other by sharing clinical experience, audit and research and building on and developing new collaborations.
As we say in Scotland – Ceud mìlle fàilte (A Hundred Thousand Welcomes)!
