Collaboration with the National Societies of Nephrology from Europe and Countries Bordering Europe and the Mediterranean Sea (= ERA-EDTA geographical area) (http://web.era-edta.org/era-edta-for-national-societies)

ERA-EDTA has been organising very successful meetings with the representatives of the National Societies of Nephrology (two representatives for each Society are invited to attend), however since 2013, these meetings have become a half day event with much more interaction and new ideas for possible collaborations. In 2018, this half day event was again organised immediately before the start of the annual ERA-EDTA Congress.
The meetings are always very lively and ERA-EDTA has now added many new features that aim at keeping the National Societies up-to date with all the ERA-EDTA initiatives, but also putting the various National Societies in contact with each other having ample opportunity to network. 

National Societies have visibility on the ERA-EDTA web-site and are also welcome to actively take part in the annual ERA-EDTA Congress by participating, or taking advantage of events and opportunities exclusively designed for them. For example, during the 2018 Congress a free registration was offered to all National Societies and all were offered the possibility of sending materials related to their specific events/initiatives to be placed in the “Future Events & Education” booth in the exhibition area (ERA-EDTA took care of covering the local handling fees for these mailings). 
ERA-EDTA also offers National Societies the opportunity to grant the best abstract/poster presenter at their Annual Congress with three years of free ERA-EDTA membership (including free access to NDT Online), plus one free ERA-EDTA Congress Registration.

In 2018 the following twelve abstract/poster presenters won the ERA-EDTA National Grant:
