#EuARe2020. Message from the EuARe President and Team

April 1, 2020

Dear Participants and Partners,

As you are all aware, the spread of the Coronavirus epidemic at national and international level is raising the levels of uncertainty about all the planned activities for the months ahead.
During the past weeks, our Executive Board and the Secretariat in Bologna have been in constant communication to monitor the situation, but unfortunately, we do not see any chance for the conference to take place in June, nor the uncertainties we are facing allow us to easily postpone it to a later date.
We have therefore decided not to wait any longer and cancel #EuARe2020.

Those of you who already paid the registration fees will be refunded in the next weeks. Please, allow us some time as the Secretariat is working from home and not all administrative duties are easy to conduct in such a situation.

Nonetheless, we are willing to keep serving our community and therefore are already at work to recreate online some of the networking opportunities usually offered by our Conference.
We will soon update you with such news, so stay tuned!

Moreover, we can already tell you to SAVE THE DATE, #EuARe2021 will take place from August 30 to September 2, 2021 in Münster, Germany. More news will be available soon.

Looking forward to meeting you (virtually or in person!), we send you our warmest regards.

The EuARe President and Secretariat
