European Summer School on Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

3-20 September 2024

Spetses Island

The 2024 summer school will be held on the beautiful island of Spetses in Greece.


Sitting in the heart of the Saronic Gulf and belonging to the Saronic island group, Spetses Greece stands out for its architecture and elegance.

It is a picturesque island with very little motorised transport, so you can wander undisturbed and explore the beautiful alleys at your own pace. Around Dapia, the island's port, there are a selection of cafes and bars, ideal for a leisurely coffee or a sunset drink .
