The Summit of European Orthopaedic Research: 
EORS 2010
Davos, Switzerland, June 30–July 2, 2010

Jörg Goldhahn, MD, and Alexandra Poulsson, PhD

The 18th conference of the European Orthopaedic Research Society (EORS) took place in Davos, Switzerland, from the 30th of June to the 2nd of July, 2010. The organizers intended to provide a platform for clinicians, scientists, and industry to come together and discuss current issues and innovations in orthopaedic research. In order to achieve this goal, most sessions commenced with a keynote lecture that aimed to highlight cutting edge clinical and scientific research. These lectures, together with selected oral presentations, formed the basis for many discussions among the participants that were continued during the breaks and poster sessions. The newly opened bright congress facilities, the beautiful surroundings of Davos, the friendly atmosphere, and the combination of clinicians and researchers all contributed to intensive exchange of ideas and concepts. This helped to bridge the gap between clinicians dealing with orthopaedic problems in their clinical life and researchers approaching these problems from a primarily academic perspective. The sessions were structured to encompass fundamental research (e.g. numerical approaches and bioreactors) and clinical analyses (e.g. clinical outcome of meniscal transplantation) in the same session, in order to present the whole picture regarding the current state of the art in various areas.
