Mission and Vision


The main aim of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology is to promote interest in, and understanding of, reproductive biology and medicine.

ESHRE collaborates globally and advocates universal improvements in scientific research and harmonization in clinical practice. It also provides guidance that enhances safety and quality assurance in clinical and laboratory procedures.

ESHRE’s activities include teaching, training and professional accreditations, as well as developing and maintaining data registries. It also facilitates and disseminates research in human reproduction and embryology to the general public, scientists, clinicians and patient associations.

ESHRE collaborates with politicians and policy makers throughout Europe.
