From the 2nd till the 5th of July, Willem Ombelet and his team attended the ESHRE-meeting in Geneva.

Previously, Willem was coordinator of the Special Interest Group (SIG) "Andrology"; now he is past coordinator of this SIG.

In November (23rd – 25th) the SIG "Andrology" organises a congress in Antwerp with a special focus on IUI.

Meanwhile, Willem changed from the SIG "Andrology" to the SIG "Global and Socio-Cultural Aspects of infertility". He also gave a lecture about the extanding good results of the simplified IVF-method with already 83 pregnancies. Undoubtly, this lecture opens perspectives for the TWE-project!

The joint ESHRE and ASRM 'Best Of' meetings have quickly established a tradition for bringing together world authorities in the science of reproductive medicine, with updates on the latest concepts and developments presented in a framework of lectures, debates and back-to-back sessions. The meeting is now set on a biannual track, with venues alternating between North America and Europe. 

The 2017 meeting was organised in Paris from 23 to 25 February 2017.
Both Walking Egg members, Jonathan Van Blerkom and Willem Ombelet were invited as speakers.

Jonathan was invited for a debate session: "Is there scientific evidence for boosting mitochondrial function in oocytes?", while Willem gave a presentation on The Walking Egg project during a plenary lecture.
