EuroBlight network to host online technical meetings in March and April

The EuroBlight network announced recently that it will organise four subgroup meetings and one online workshop in March and April this year to replace the physical workshop originally planned for May, 2021. An online EuroBlight workshop meeting will be held May 11 – 12 this year.

Each subgroup meeting will cover two blocks of 1½ hour each. All meetings will be organised by Aarhus University via ZOOM or by one partner institution.

EuroBlight offers 5 minute presentations and 1 minute “elevator talks” about your work. If you want to present then please indicate the title of your presentation when registering.
