An important and developing role of the ESPN is the support of training of paediatric nephrologists within Europe. This is achieved through a number of initiatives:

  • • Production of "Recommendations for the training of European Paediatric Nephrologists". Click here to read this document. 

  • • Provision of ESPN training grants. Each year, one or two will be awarded to young paediatric nephrologists in training from developing countries within Europe, to enable them to spend up to two months at one or more established paediatric nephrology centres.

  • • In the future, it is also hoped to have a regular summer school, run somewhere in Central Europe, to provide further training opportunities.



  •  The aim of the Society is to promote research knowledge of paediatric nephrology through teaching, scientific meetings and other methods, for the benefit of children with renal disease.

  •  World Kidney Day activities in ESPN Centres

  • ESPN Research Grant 2014 ; the call is closed & the results were announced at ESPN General Assembly Meeting in Porto.
