The European Society of Aerospace Medicine was founded in 2006 as an umbrella organisation in the field of Aerospace Medicine. As a pan-European, independent forum, it works to promote the safety and health of all persons involved in aviation and space operations , and to coordinate European aerospace medical interests across all national and organisational boundaries.
We aim to assist the various responsible bodies in the development and harmonisation of educational activities in aerospace medicine throughout Europe, and to develop continuous information flows and dialogue between the National Aeromedical Associations, and encourage the exchange of scientific results and experience. We strive to reach a consensus which can then contribute to the scientific evidence base which should be the foundation of aeromedical decision making.
The "NATO Occupational Aviation Cardiology Working Group” has produced 10 scientific papers on Aviation Cardiology after presenting 3 NATO panels in the last 3 years during AsMa meetings.
European specialists have been important in this work, which has substantial practical relevance for evaluation of both civilian and military air crew.

This was a lively and fruitful meeting, with discussions mainly centred at improving the communication with our member associations/societies and associates, and with the wider public. We established a working group with the task to develop a communication strategy, to find ways for ESAM to be more visible not only through its website but also by using popular social media channels.
End of January we received the sad news that Dr. Annette Ruge, our colleague for many, many years had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Most of us in the aero-medical community have been in close contact with her as a competent colleague, aero-medical specialist and member of the executive board of the German Society of Aerospace Medicine.
Dear ESAM, the Aerospace Family of Europe, dear friends and colleagues around the world,
Recently, we concluded the ECAM 2018 conference in the beautiful city of Prague. As far as I can see, it was a great success, with over 350 registrations from 54 nations. The organizing committee led by Declan Maher has done an outstanding job, ensuring a smooth running congress in a lovely venue, topped by the Gala dinner and afterparty which was indeed something else! We must of course mention our Czech local organisers of the Czech Society of Aviation Medicine and the Czech institute of Aviation medicine – thank you for your kind hospitality and support for making the congress a success!
