Dear Members of ERSA, Dear Colleagues,

 

The programme of our upcoming ERSA-JRC Winter School is currently being designed with the JRC Local Organising Committee and our confirmed lecturers (see below). The call for application has been a great success. We are confindent to propose a very rich-content programme to our young researchers who will be promptly selected.

 

We have also launched the Call for Special Sessions of the next ERSA Congress in Bolzano, late August. Apply to this very good opportunity to share your work!

 

I would like to announce that considering our proven experience with the organization of online events, ERSA is going to offer its services to host professional virtual events. A virtual event of presentation will take place on December 10.

 

We hope that we will be able to meet in person in 2021. For the coming months, we encourage our community to stay in contact and continue the exchange virtually. There is a valuable event offer of online events, see the current agenda for the coming weeks in this newsletter.

 

With best wishes

Keep safe.
