The Society

Welcome to the website of the European Underwater and Baromedical Society !

Our message of solidarity with the people of Ukraine has been moved to the sidebar posts, and will remain on top until this conflict has been resolved peacefully. 

The EUBS is the European scientific society dedicated to the study and promotion of diving and hyperbaric medicine, a fascinating but all too little known field of medicine.
This website is intended to provide you with information on the goals and activities of our Society. You will find information on our Annual Scientific Meeting, as well as reprints of the Society’s Journal. This site is updated on a regular basis, so check it out from time to time.

  • 48th Annual Scientific Meeting of EUBS: 

    After the great success of its 47th edition in Porto, the EUBS Annual Scientific Meeting will move to Brest (France) for its 48th meeting which will take place from 16–20 September 2024. At the heart of a beautiful harbour, Brest is a city oriented towards the ocean. As a military, commercial and yachting port with one of Europe’s largest centres dedicated to the sea, the city has a centuries-old maritime tradition. The region has managed to preserve its beauty and authenticity, and its coastline, dotted with magnificent beaches and lighthouses, is well worth a visit.

    EUBS will therefore be delighted to welcome you to participate in this Meeting to contribute to its success.
    Keep monitoring the website for all the news and updates.
