EASL is delighted to announce that has opened a new Brussels' Office, to ensure that all members of The Home of Hepatology are fully represented in the heart of the EU and beyond.

The new EASL Office in Brussels is located in the Schuman district, directly opposite the office of the EU Commissioners, and permits EASL closer access to our EU-based partners, policy-makers, and Commissioners.

To fully ensure that the EU Policy office is as effective as possible, so we are also happy to announce two new staff positions.
