Building upon the tremendous success of our previous gatherings, we are thrilled to present to you the ESPNIC Xperience, an event that has established itself as the world’s premier paediatric and neonatal critical care medicine meeting.


This year’s congress promises to be an enriching and unparalleled experience for all professionals seeking to stay at the forefront of their field, applying cutting-edge science to clinical care, presenting groundbreaking research, and forming lasting collaborations.

By exchanging ideas and knowledge with colleagues from different countries and settings, you’ll broaden your perspective and make valuable connections in a multidisciplinary environment.


The congress will serve as an exceptional platform for sharing your expertise with numerous experts in neonatal and paediatric intensive care, representing Europe and beyond.
