27-03-2023 - 29-07-2023    

The EUthyroid2 kick-off meeting was held on 27-29th March 2023 in Krakow, Poland. All consortium members presented their organisations and roles in the project. This two-day meeting offered an overview of the work packages and an outline of detailed plans.
The representatives of the project partner institutions met with other consortium members to align on the next steps for increasing awareness of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) and related risks among adolescents and young women in Europe and beyond.
The project builds on EUthyroid and the Krakow Declaration on iodine and will establish best practice models for cost-effective, sustainable prevention of IDD across EU member states.
Professor Henry Völzke (University Medicine Greifswald), the scientific coordinator of the EUthyroid2 project, identified the project aims. All work package leaders outline their road map for the activities of the first year of the project to the consortium.
The project participants and partners are committed to taking important steps toward the elimination of iodine deficiency and preventable iodine-related disorders in Europe and beyond.
