Prof. Stavros Konstatinides

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to the website of the 5th Euro Spring School on Venous Thromboembolism.

This major bi-annual international event on the science and practice of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is organised by the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) at the University Medical Center Mainz, Germany, in collaboration with the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), The Netherlands. The Euro Spring School is endorsed by international and European scientific societies and offers CME accreditation.

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the hope of being able to ensure on-site participation for as many interested clinicians and scientists as possible, the 5th Euro Spring School on VTE will take place in autumn this year, from 22 to 26 September 2021!

VTE is a field in which ongoing research continues to revolutionise clinical practice and improving patient outcomes. Based on the support and the feedback that we received from you in our past Spring Schools, we have taken every care to ensure that the programme of the 5th Euro Spring School 2021 will include the most relevant and contemporary scientific topics related to thrombosis and VTE, while promoting active interactions and scientific networking. The programme will feature: 

  • State of the Art Clinical Seminars in the morning sessions
  • Moderated Abstract Presentations with Young Investigator Awards
  • Breakout Workshops in the afternoon sessions
  • Hands-On Tutorials and Career Tutorials
  • Lunch and Learn noon sessions and
  • numerous further networking opportunities


We very much hope that you will join us for this exciting educational event in September 2021! Please have a look at the Final Programme and Faculty of the Euro Spring School and register via our registration page.

With very best wishes


Stavros Konstantinides and Menno Huisman
