Holden, UK e BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE ESP The European Society of Pathology (ESP) was established in 1963 in Brussels and is a leading force in European pathology and, as such, is pivotal to the future of the spe- cialty in Europe and beyond. As a scientific society, the ESP has, as its primary aim, the promotion of high qual- ity diagnostic practice, applied and translational research and under- and postgraduate education in the field of hu- man pathology. This is achieved through its congresses, its journal Virchows Archiv and various other activities. The ESP interacts with national pathology societies in Europe and has developed links with other EU bodies in close col- laboration with UEMS (Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes) and EAPCP (European Association of Pathol- ogy Chairs and Programme Directors). The European School of Pathology under the auspices of the ESP and with the support of 20 Working Groups and 5 Affiliated Societies representing different fields of pathol- ogy is involved in the organisation of courses to meet the needs of young pathologists. The ESP Foundation provides external quality assessment (QA) programmes for several biomarkers. Diagnostic laboratories worldwide participate in the ESP Foundation QA schemes, such as Lung and Colon.
