The PROMETEO project was developed as part of the Leonardo Programme in 2004, for the Italian Liver Transplantation Association.

Through PROMETEO it has been possible to offer young specialists in transplant surgery at the Polytechnic University of Bari, the possibility of an internship at Le Cliniques Universitaires Saint Luc in Brussels and the Hospital Medical School in Ghent; two of the country’s most renowned centres in the sector.
