03.03.2021. During their last meeting that took place on 5 February 2021, the CIECA PB made the decision to hold the 53rd CIECA Congress in 2021 in a virtual format instead of continuing with the plans for a face-to-face Congress in Porto. Given the uncertain circumstances brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is felt that this is the safest course of action. The CIECA PB reached this decision after consideration of all available information regarding the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic from the WHO, and the rest of governmental authorities and organizations that take part in CIECA.
At this stage, we are confident that an online format will facilitate new channels of communication and will ensure that all CIECA members, and all stakeholders will be able to attend and participate in our annual event.
While we finalize the logistics of this event, please save these dates:
- The CIECA General Assembly will take place on 26 May 2021 from 11:00 to 13:00 CET. The agenda of the GA will be available soon.
- The 53rd CIECA Congress will be held on 27 and 28 May 2021. Further information on the timing and programme of this event will also be provided very shortly.
We look forward to welcoming you to our annual Congress once more, and we hope that, as always, you will enjoy this experience. If you have any questions in relation to this event, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the CIECA Secretariat.
Please continue to keep safe. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our event one more year!
