For many years, the EASL Governing Board has heard from different partners and stakeholders about the need to extend the top level science and educational initiatives beyond Europe. EASL listened to the community and then analyzed the best way to respond in the most effective manner.
Following independent advice, the need to establish a dedicated vehicle to support this objective was clearly identified and executed in order for EASL to focus on its core activities derived from the latest scientific research and so that liver knowledge can be shared with everyone.
In 2016, the EASL International Liver Foundation was established by EASL and Professor Massimo Colombo was appointed as the board chairperson.
