Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) present numerous complex clinical problems. Due to their relatively rare occurrence, research and patient care guidelines since the 1990s have been lacking. As a result, the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society was founded in 2004 and the society members, currently numbering nearly 1,200, bring a variety of expertise from such fields as oncology, pathology, radiology, nuclear medicine, endocrinology, surgery and gastroenterology to ENETS.


 ENETS goals include

  • improve the diagnosis and therapy of patients with neuroendocrine tumors in an international, interdisciplinary and scientific context
  • coordinate research at European hospitals and health research institutes, with emphasis on basic and clinical research for the diagnosis and treatment of NETs

  • further develop standards for the accreditations of ENETS Centers of Excellence

  • offer education and training for physicians and scientists at annual scientific and educational meetings

  • focus on writing and updating NET guidelines for all aspects of NET care including treatment and standards of care and subsequently publicising in medical and scientific journals

  • foster the exchange of forums for young investigators

  • support collaborative scientific projects of excellence

  • communicate with and inform patient advocates and patient self-help groups

  • cooperate with the pharmaceutical industry for the development of new diagnostic, therapeutic and information technologies

  • further endorse the ENETS Registry and Centers of Excellence throughout Europe
Important Notice:

In preparation of the upcoming 16th Annual ENETS Conference, 6 to 8 March 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, we have discovered in the world wide web at least one professional entity suggestive of possessing an ENETS mandate for conference registrations. Therefore, we must inform you that 100% of all conference participants are registered through ENETS official website www.enets.org and http://enetsconference.org/. There are no further options to validly register for Barcelona 2019 (or for any other ENETS event).

Please stay away from fraudulent scams abusing the ENETS acronym to register – and charge you above official ENETS conference fees! Such entities, against whom ENETS presses criminal charges, are neither authorized, nor commissioned nor instructed by ENETS to make such representations.
