For the very first time in its long-standing history the ESP 2021 congress will be held as virtual event, featuring pre-recorded and life online presentations with options for interactive discussion. This way, we will provide a forum for scientific exchange between top researchers and young scientists in photobiology, photomedicine and photochemistry from all over the world without the need to travel.

As a sponsor of this unique event your company will be given the opportunity to:

  •   promote your innovative products online to make your brands visible to your target audience.
  •   integrate your products in innovative science.
  •   get in touch and build a relationship with your customers.
  •   establish new collaborations between your company and academic researchers and institutions.
  •   communicate with present and future key leaders in photobiology from around the globe.
  •   share and communicate your achievements in research and development.
  •   capture the latest scientific content relevant to your research and training programmes.


The 19th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology received the status of COMPLIANT from EthicalMedTech.
