Registration and abstract submission are open for the 2023 meeting!

The umbrella association Osteogenesis Imperfecta Federation Europe (OIFE), together with members from our Medical Advisory Board, invite you to register for the second virtual European Investigator Meeting for osteogenesis imperfecta (OI).


November 17th, 2023 (on Zoom)


2 PM - 7 PM Central European Time
8 AM - 1 PM Eastern Standard Time

Programme and Call for Abstracts!

The programme will include presentations and discussion on the following topics:

  • Research collaboration in Europe: hurdles and opportunities
  • What’s new in basic science?
  • Methods and tools to evaluate outcomes in clinical trials
  • Patient involvement in research
  • Nosology and classification in OI

Call for abstracts: showcase your research on osteogenesis imperfecta! 

A number of oral slots are available on the programme for submitted abstracts on OI research.  Priority will be given to abstracts describing novel research and hot topics.

We invite your abstracts on any aspect of OI research, whether basic, translational or clinical. A limited number of oral slots are available on the programme and priority will be given to abstracts describing novel research and hot topics related to OI.  Abstracts with no data are unlikely to be accepted for presentation on the programme.

Presentations will not be recorded or streamed outside of the webinar and abstracts will not be published, enabling the presentation and discussion of unpublished data.

This is an opportunity for you to present and discuss your OI-related work with an international group of fellow OI-researchers in a relatively informal setting and without the costs and time involved in travelling to in-person meetings.  The aim is to facilitate collaboration and development of research in OI.
