MOVE is an active and relaxed consortium of European National EV Societies (NEVS) who got together to foster MObility for Vesicles research in Europe (MOVE). Their overarching aim is to encourage communication between the societies at all levels of membership, with the purpose of promoting EV research and understanding across Europe. It is intended that MOVE activities will foster collaboration between members in different European nations and across different biological / biomedical disciplines, taking advantage of geographical proximity and expertise. NEVS are encouraged to participate in collaborative MOVE activities as far as they are able, or as far as their Board and Membership wish to, there is no minimum or maximum level of engagement required for a NEVS to be considered part of MOVE.

In this scenario, we are excited to announce the first MOVE symposium which will be held on 24-27th of October 2023 in Malaga, Spain. For this initiative GEIVEX (Spain), GSEV (Germany), UKEV (UK) and EVIta (Italy) are taking the lead and we expect that many EVs research groups from these and other NEVS will attend together with an outstanding group of international speakers.

This International Symposium will focus on novel concepts and clinical applications of EVs paying special attention to EVs as intercellular communicators (in  health and disease) as well as in methodologies for the identification of biomarkers and therapy targets. To achieve productive discussions and maintain the excellent standards of our symposia, we are already working to provide a list of high-quality keynote speakers for each session.

Beyond all, we consider this MOVE Symposium in 2023 as an important opportunity to create and strengthen partnerships between professionals dedicated to EVs research, from both basic and clinical fields and to have the opportunity to meet the renowned speakers. The chosen venue will be the Auditorium of the Law Faculty of Malaga University (UMA).

We look forward to your active and enthusiastic participation in the meeting and to enjoy an exceptional location of the south of Spain.

EVCNA Special Issue


The EVCNA Special Issue "EV Insight" welcomes the submission of full papers and review articles from the participants who will be presenting either oral presentations or poster presentations at the MOVE symposium. The goal is to compile a vital Special Issue showcasing new methods and their results in EV research across Europe, with a particular emphasis on Young EV Scientists, PhDs, and Postdocs. We furthermore look forward to receiving review articles from the invited keynote speakers. No article processing charge (APC) will be taken for this Special Issue. You find more info here =>

Facultad derecho.bmp


The symposium will take place from October 24th to 27th at the Faculty of Law (Facultad de Derecho) of the University of Malaga, located on the Teatinos campus (Bulevar Louis Pasteur, 26, 29071 Málaga)

How to get to the Faculty of Law

  • Metro: Line 1 (El Perchel-Andalucía Tech), 'Universidad' station (5 minutes from the venue).

  • Bus: Line 11 (Louis Pasteur-Dr. Gutierrez Mata), stop 'Faculty of Law' (‘Facultad de Derecho’)

  • Taxi: There are tow main taxi companies in Malaga. UniTaxi (+34 952 333 333) and Teletaxi (+34 951 138 033)

How to get to Málaga:

  • Flying to Málaga: The Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport is one of the most important in Spain and has connections to major cities worldwide. Located just eight miles from the city's Historic Quarter, it is renowned for its modern terminals and extensive shopping areas. Málaga airport receives around 13 million passengers a year, making it the gateway to Andalusia. Currently, more than 60 airlines use its facilities.

  • Driving to Málaga: Highway A-45 (Antequera-Málaga) Access from the north must be done via the A-45 motorway (Antequera-Málaga), connected to the A-92 that crosses the Andalusian Autonomous Community and onto which the connections coming from the north of the country flow. The A-45 allows visitors to enter Málaga through Ciudad Jardín, to reach the city center, or opt for the West ring road that connects directly with the Teatinos campus.

  • By Train: The Vialia María Zambrano Central Station is located on Avenida de la Estación, in the heart of the city and just a 10-minute walk from the center of the capital. It connects with the airport directly through the C-1 line and is located 2 km from the Port of Malaga. It also connects with the Teatinos University Campus through Metro Line 1.

  • By bus: The bus station is situated in a central location and operates with companies that have routes to destinations to the cities and villages of Malaga, Andalusia and, at national level, all over Spain. Furthermore, it also operates with companies that serve routes to and from Europe and can even provide tickets and stop offs for the north of Africa.
