Activities and Projects



Improving Child Health Globally 

The Excellence in Pediatrics Conference (EIP) is the Institute's annual flagship event that updates its delegates on the latest scientific developments and more importantly helps them to improve the standard of care they deliver on the Monday morning after the meeting. The EIP Faculty presents cutting-edge research and its specific use for pediatric practice - providing attendees with unparalleled access to frontline research, but critically with a professional translation into clinical practice. The Excellence in Pediatrics Conference is a truly collaborative event designed for the benefit of frontline child healthcare professionals from across Europe and around the world. The scientific program can be viewed as a series of parallel speciality conferences that cover the very latest hot topics and developments across specialities of pediatrics. In addition to the speciality specific section, an interdisciplinary track covers overarching topics. This way delegates can learn about signs and treatment per area, not just per discipline. 



Connecting Pediatricians to Improve Child Health Globally

The Excellence in Pediatrics Community is a collaborative global network allowing members to engage in peer-to-peer learning through our online communication platform. The EIP Community enables members to connect and work with their colleagues around the world. Our members are the core of the EIP Institute deciding on priorities, and shaping our activities. The Excellence in Pediatrics Community is open for individual healthcare professionals from all over the world to become members and is free to join and participate in.



Access the Latest Free-To-View Online Learnings

EIP is proud to have organised over 50 free-to-view webinars and courses over the past 5 years. EIP webinars are hosted and promoted throughout the year with a target of increasing awareness and knowledge among frontline child healthcare professionals through Peer-to-Peer education. ​All webinars are recorded and made available to the 45,000 healthcare professionals connected to EIP, and many thousands more around the world. Over the past 5 years, EIP has also developed an extensive online educational content library by recording sessions of the annual conference. ​Our Recorded Sessions Library features over 250 sessions allowing you to update your skills and knowledge.



Protecting All Against Vaccine-Preventable Diseases

Vaccines Together is an initiative and online collaboration hub run by EIP, targeting to increase vaccination coverage rates across Europe, and across all stages of life, by facilitating collaboration, best practices exchange, ideas and educational resources sharing among organisations, associations, and institutions involved in promoting vaccinations. EIP works in partnership as part of the EU Vaccines Coalition. Topics are selected to correspond directly with specific needs that have been identified by the European Commission. In addition to the 6 Working Groups formed, Vaccines Together aims to build vaccine confidence among healthcare professionals directly through targeted campaigns and free-to-view online vaccine training courses.

LifeCourse Vaccinations as the Basis of Health Systems Resilience

Now in its 7th year, the Summit and Working Groups have the overarching policy priority of establishing life course vaccinations as the basis of health system resilience in 2022 and beyond. By bringing together over 50 key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers EIP are working on what needs to change and what activities need to happen to support this desired change. The Summit and Working Group Meetings are central to EIP's work as part of the EU Vaccines Coalition and we are proud to collaborate with many allied organisations and associations in our work.



Early Diagnosis Can Make a Difference

The program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. Following a Peer-to-Peer educational approach, the program targets to improve everyday practise and the way child healthcare professionals advise and treat the children and families they support. Pediatricians and family doctors are likely to be the first healthcare professionals to observe symptoms, and it is important to help these front-line clinicians suspect, diagnose, and refer patients as early as possible.
