A symposium was held in June 2009 near Freiburg in Germany. Twenty-nine attendees from several European countries participated, most of whom are actively involved in research and hospital infection prevention and control. The following topics were presented and discussed: isolation and screening for control of multidrug-resistant organisms; impact of the environment on healthcare-associated infection (HAI); new technologies to control infection--state of evidence; surveillance of HAI; methodological challenges and research priorities for infection control and control of HAI: learning from each other in a united Europe. This Leader summarises the main issues for debate and the number of consensus points agreed amongst delegates.
