12th European Cleft Congress

Milan - Italy, 24 - 28 June 2024

 2nd Congress of the European Cleft Palate and craniofacial Anomalies Association


Dear Friends,

Milan warmly welcomes you to the 12th European Cleft Congress and 2nd Congress of the European Cleft Palate and craniofacial Anomalies Association founded in Gothenburg in 2015, from 24 to 28 June 2024. 

Our conference venue, a stunningly beautiful 19th century palace, is located right in the city center.

Milan is a beautiful city of contrasts, offering you fashion, shopping, and design, mingled with history and art, … from the Duomo to the Castle, from the Scala Opera house to the masterpieces of Leonardo da Vinci.

By train or car, in less than two hours, you can be lying at the seaside beach, boating on a lake, or hiking in the beautiful Alps.

Going back to science… such a stimulating setting is absolutely ideal for even the most heated scientific discussions during the day, which may easily be settled in the evening in front of a glass of relaxing wine and divine Italian food!!

We are looking forward to meeting you in Milan!

Maria Costanza Meazzini

President – European Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association

                                                 SUPPORT TO UKRAINE

from the European Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association

This is a statement of solidarity from the ECPCA to support our Ukrainian colleagues.

The humanitarian tragedy taking place right now at the heart of Europe, is heartbreaking, therefore, many of our members are now actively supporting, each through their specific specialty Associations, the donation of drugs, medical equipment, and instrumentation.

ECPCA is not a structured Association with active members, but we encourage donations to the fund raising page MSF to support medical volunteers involved in relief efforts with the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

ECPCA wishes to waive all the subscription fees for the online Course 2022-2023 presently open for all Ukrainian colleagues who might wish to follow the online Course which will begin in November 2022. Ecpca Craniofacial Orthodontics Course – ECPCA 2024 (ecpcamilan2024.it)
