Annual Report 2020
A full year of cancellations and retooling, however, has led to significant financial hardship. We have been forced to draw upon our cash reserves for continued survival. Revenues have decreased substantially while fixed costs have remained stable. [...]
We wish to call upon our EUROSPINE membership for support to enable us to move forward with a rich palette of membership services encompassing education, research, quality assurance, and premier meetings and events.
Please register for events, e.g. EUROSPINE 2021, as soon as they are announced and plan to attend as many as possible, whether in-person or online.
Spine Tango: Powerful new Capabilities and wider Acceptance
Established in 2002, Spine Tango is the EUROSPINE international registry used to collect standardised data on treatment effectiveness, patient safety and best practice. In 2020, we have continued to integrate valuable new features that enable and simplify treatment and implant quality assurance and evidence-based research. Nearly 800,000 forms from five continents have been collected thus far.

Education: Moving into the Digital Age with eLearning
EUROSPINE offers a comprehensive education programme, with courses and diploma programmes aimed at health care professionals from all disciplines of spine care. Unfortunately, our Education Week (EduWeek) in 2020 had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 social distancing and travel restrictions. To minimise disruption in ongoing training, all efforts have been made to take our existing blended learning platform completely online, offering participants full flexibility.

Membership: Continued Growth in spite of Covid Cancellations
We were delighted to welcome 161 new members from 45 countries in 2020, and to increase our EUROSPINE Ambassadors programme (to promote the EUROSPINE 2020 virtual meeting) to 28 members.
Despite cancellations and postponements due to COVID-19, demand for valuable EUROSPINE services and networking opportunities has remained stable. Even though EUROSPINE events and activities could not take place in 2020, many members demonstrated their loyalty and support through a difficult period by continuing to pay their membership fees on time.
