EAU History

The origins of this continent-wide association stretch back to the early 1970s. In over forty years, the EAU has grown enormously in both membership and scope.

The foundation of the EAU transcended the political climate that initially divided the continent, putting the improvement of patient care at the forefront of everything it does.
