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.

A message for the International Women's Day: Empowering Young People with Fertility Education

Women’s rights are human rights. But in these troubled times, as our world becomes more unpredictable and chaotic, the rights of women and girls are being reduced, restricted and reversed. Empowering women and girls is the only way to protect their rights and make sure they can realize their full potential.

Prof. Dr. Geeta Nargund, a Walking Egg board, member speaks about fertility education and why schools need to implement this into their curriculum. She discusses her personal experiences in treating infertility to highlight the importance of earlier education that aims to prevent such issues.
