European CME Forum is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing together all stakeholder groups with an interest in European Continuing Medical Education (CME)/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for healthcare professionals. It facilitates multi-channel discussion in an independent and neutral environment to promote the advance of high quality CME in Europe.
We do have plans for 2021, but like everything, it is all labelled “to be confirmed”! We have secured a great venue in Barcelona for the 14th Annual European CME Forum to take place 3-5 November 2021. Depending on how the pandemic develops we will either meet there, or we will have a virtual meeting on those days. We will decide later in the year. More information here.

13th Annual European CME Forum
European and global CME: What next?
In November 2020 as the UK went into its second Covid lockdown and we awaited the results of the US Presidential election, we gathered online for the 13th Annual European CME Forum. The theme was: “European and global CME: What next?” The meeting was split into six sections, each one with a Plenary session that was led by one of our traditional stakeholder groups: accreditors, European medical societies, industry and professional providers, with a session led by JECME and a final summary Plenary.
You can view the Educational Materials section, the online meeting book, here.
As this year was a virtual meeting we have created the 13ECF Meeting Archive, which contains over 18 hours of presentations and discussions, given by the faculty of 70 CME experts, with the associated supporting material, so that participants can catch up on sessions they may have missed, or want to see again. This impressive resource is available to non-delegates for a fee (€50 – please contact us to arrange payment and access). This resource will be live until the end of May 2021.
