Representatives from national Kidney Exchange Programmes (KEPs) in more than a dozen European countries participated in the third ENCKEP workshop, which took place at Ciutadella Campus (UPF) on September 28-29, 2017.

The workshop brings together policy makers, clinicians and optimization experts to exchange best practices and scientific state of the art with national KEPs, develop a jointly used common framework for data and optimization, develop and test a prototype for transnational KEPs, and to stimulate European policy dialogue.
