Our mission is:
Originally founded in 1982 in Leuven, Belgium, the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM) was then referred to as the European Society of Gastrointestinal Motility. Its founding members were Gaston Vantrappen, David Wingate, Martin Wienbeck and other colleagues. During the first 20 years of its existence, the association met on a biannual basis in relation with the International Group for the Study of Gastrointestinal Motility and had no independent organization. It then counted some 350 members.
In 2005, the association was restructured to better reflect its missions and functions. That is when the fields of neurophysiology and pathophysiology of gastrointestinal function studies were put forward. In 2008, the membership has risen to almost 1000 registered members and now ESNM comprises about 3000 members.
ESNM Statutes direct the daily activities and are regularly reviewed and adapted to reflect our continual developments.
