EWMA 2025: Scientific programme


The full EWMA 2025 programme will feature a mixture of topics important to the wound community. We are working on getting the programme ready for you as we speak and will reveal it on this page as soon as possible.

In the meantime, please get acquainted with the different session formats of the Scientific Programme below:

Key sessions

The programme will feature a mixture of new topics, which are important to the European wound community, in addition to topics that have been popular during previous EWMA conferences. The sessions will deal with advancement of education and research in relation to epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis, prevention and management of wounds.


Focus sessions

A focus session is an opportunity to go into depth with a topic. The focus sessions take place in a smaller setting and typically have 1-2 speakers.



The workshops are typically held in a smaller setting than key sessions, focus sessions and free paper sessions. EWMA workshops are interactive and give participants an opportunity to address and elaborate on particular aspects of the themes of the individual sessions.


Guest sessions
