Industry partners


We thank our Industry Partners for their support of annual ESDR meetings and ESDR educational programs.

By supporting ESDR activities your company shows commitment to research in dermatology and to the ESDR’s mission to support skin science.


The annual scientific meeting of the ESDR is held each September in Europe. Every 5 years the annual ESDR meeting becomes tricontinental (ISID meeting) and is held in collaboration with the Society for Investigative Dermatology, the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology, the Korean Society for Investigative Dermatology and the Taiwanese Society for Investigative Dermatology. The next ISID meeting will be held in 2023.

The content of the annual ESDR meeting includes guest lectures from internationally recognised scientists, cutting-edge “Frontier” talks in skin science, oral presentations from peer-reviewed abstracts, educational symposia on a wide-range of topics and electronic presentations of posters. With an attendance of about 1200 participants, ESDR meetings attract basic and clinical scientists with an interest in dermatology to discover the latest lab-based, clinical and translational research findings.


The annual ESDR meeting provides sponsors with a large variety of items to increase their visibility before, during and after the event.

ESDR Kitchen, our brand new series of live educational webinars, started on 8 July 2020. Every second Wednesday at 13.30 (CET) we will run a live, moderated free webinar on Zoom. One theme out of the following will be cooked during each webinar:

  • The Recipe Book: New technologies and research techniques explained
  • Sweet and Sour: Two protagonists debate a hot topic
  • Freshly Baked: The latest high impact research findings
  • Molecular Cuisine: Discovery pathways from well-known leaders in investigative dermatology


Opportunity to support a new state-of-the-art live moderated educational program presented by dermatology experts on selected hot topics

The ESDR Academy for Future Leaders in Dermatology (FLA) is an annual educational event launched in 2011. The FLA brings together highly gifted young scientists and renowned senior scientists from dermatological departments all over Europe and beyond for a 2.5-day meeting. Applications are reviewed on scientific merit by the ESDR Scientific Program Committee.

The goal of this initiative is to encourage excellent young dermatologists to further pursue their academic careers through guidance and mentoring of established scientists in the field. Besides scientific sessions, there is a strong emphasis on encouraging attendees to network and to exchange ideas with their peers and mentors.

Alumni of the Academy organise a highly successful Future Leaders Symposium at the annual ESDR meeting.


Opportunity to be part of a unique educational program targeting future leaders and rising stars in dermatology.

In recent years alumni from the FLA have shown a growing interest in participating in a Leadership and Mentoring program.

To meet the unmet needs for these rising stars in dermatology the ESDR has launched a personalised course in leadership development in collaboration with the Alliance Manchester Business School.

This new educational initiative is to help selected future leaders in dermatology across Europe to develop their own personal leadership style, as well as to analyse and strengthen their interpersonal, informational and decision-making skills.
