in Response to Covid19
29-30 October 2020
Pre-Conference 28 October 2020
Dear EUSEA members and friends,
Over the last weeks you may all have experienced how the spreading virus Covid19 is creating concerns among colleagues, families and friends. All across the world universities, companies, cultural institutions and other stakeholders are limiting travels and larger events now, to avoid further transmissions of the virus. We – the organising team in Cork and the EUSEA Board – have closely observed all data and developments available until today. We have also studied recommendations from the WHO and national institutions with a qualified perspective on this issue.
Based on these facts and suggestions, we have discussed the impact of Covid19 on our upcoming conference. As much as we all would love to meet you all in Cork for another exciting EUSEA conference, we have collaboratively decided to put safety first and postpone the EUSEA Conference 2020 October this year.
The new date for #EUSEA2020 in Cork is
29-30 October 2020, with a Pre-Conference on 28 October 2020!
Our plan is to conduct the conference with the same programme we had planned for April. The final program will, of course, depend upon the availability of all speakers and keynotes. All conference fees will be reimbursed. The team in Cork will notify all registered participants about the procedures for reimbursing the transferred budgets.
We hope that you understand our decision – sometimes it is better to postpone a meeting to enjoy it even more when we come together next time.
Keep safe and healthy!
Your #EUSEA2020 Conference Team and EUSEA Board
