ERSA Monthly E-news – April 2022
2 May 2022 – Nr 4
Dear members, dear colleagues,
I hope that you’re all well.
Our efforts are currently very much focused on the organization of our #ERSA2022 Congress, and things are moving forward. Given the number of submissions and the addition of onsite and online events we have made the decision to start the Congress one day earlier. The message of notification of acceptance has been sent out and registrations are coming in for both online and in Pecs participation.
We will provide a very content-rich program with high-level keynotes and roundtable sessions. If you plan to join us in Pecs, please be aware that some part of the event may be held during the two first days.
We will communicate as soon as possible with the program overview, with communications, keynote and roundtables online and onsite.
In the meantime, our sections remain pretty active. In May, two webinars are scheduled, and I will be pleased to exchange with you on the 12th of May.
With best wishes,
André Torre
ERSA President
