EU-ROP newsletter – 5th edition – February 2023

It is hard to believe that it is already February – we hope you had a good start into the year.

What is new in the EU-ROP project?

Website Update

On our EU-ROP website you will find some new features.

It is now possible for participating centers to access the database and enter patients just by clicking on the icon in the subpage  “How To Participate”.

Additionally, there is a new entry on our website called "Participating centers", where cooperating institutions are listed and pictured on a map. Check it out to see how many centers from which countries are already actively involved in the project.


ARVO 2023

Another step in the EU-ROP project is of course to publish the data gathered in the EU-ROP registry.

We are happy to inform you, that the abstract submitted to ARVO 2023 was accepted and will be presented in New Orleans in April this year.


We conducted a first analysis about the prevalence of ROP severities in our multinational cohort. The submitted abstract presents data of 203 patients from 30 centers in 8 countries with a focus on ROP characteristics such as stage, zone and presence of plus disease. We hope that presenting the abstract will help to raise awareness for the project and to recruit additional interested centers.


We are very happy, that for the first time we can now present international data from Germany, Turkey, Bulgaria, Austria, Ukraine, France, Poland, and Greece.

New team member

Last but not least, there is a new team member in the EU-ROP project.

My name is Sophie Schnorr, I am a student assistant and my tasks include among several others creating the latest newsletter editions, therefore: nice to meet you!



We would like to thank you all for your interest in the project and your ongoing support!
