SIME Patronage

Rules for SIME patronage at refresher courses, congresses and meetings

Events requesting a  patronage are organized autonomously by associations, similar scientific organizations or by single  aesthetic doctors who are members. At their discretion, the organizer can provide ECM credits through a separate agency. In fact, the patronage is not a validation for ECM credits.

The programmes of this section must have been examined by SIME Board of Governors, who, after a careful verification, officially approves of the patronage. 

The events patronised by SIME will only use the logo that can appear on all prints, including the participation certificates- of the congress, conference, and meeting. The event will be published on the website on the dedicated section.

Those who are interested will have to fill the on line patronage request. Otherwise, it is possible to send the documentation via email to

  • patronage request filled
  • copy of the provisional programme proposed
  • list of organization committee 
  • list of possible speakers
  • list of other societies which were asked to grant the patronage
  • possible sponsorships
  • copy of the brochure of the Course/Congress/Meeting (a draft is also acceptable).

In order to be accepted, besides containing the above documents, the request for patronage approval must respect the existing laws:
