Save the date! On May 23, we will host an online marathon with excellent young speakers, run by us and for us, the NEXT Jamboree. All young ICU specialists from around the world are invited to participate.

Jamboree is a word associated with the scouts and thus refers to a large gathering of young people. The NEXT Jamboree will indeed be a digital gathering with the young generation of intensivists at the centre, both as speakers and audience. But anyone interested in the future of Intensive Care Medicine and hearing from younger colleagues is invited to join!

The event is free whether you are an ESICM member or not (yet). It will be broadcast on our LIVES Stream platform, and a chat will allow you to interact with the speakers and other attendees. If you cannot follow the live, a replay will be available shortly after on the same platform.

Below you can find the preliminary programme. If you wish to propose a lecture and be a speaker at the Jamboree, please send us a topic proposal at

We look forward to seeing you there!
