Due to the COVID-19 and the continued global travel restrictions and its various effects and the measures countries are taking to guarantee the safety of inhabitants, UCN in close collaboration with the EuroCHRIE board, has decided to postpone the Annual EuroCHRIE Conference 2020.
While all possible options, including hybrid forms, were explored to avoid postponement, COVID-19 travel regulations globally have presented a barrier for nearly all delegates to attend, and thus the joint decision has been taken to postpone the conference to September 27th – 30th in 2021, which will be held in Aalborg, Denmark.
EuroCHRIE is an important platform for networking, knowledge sharing, development and research. The annual conference is an important and sociable event, and we were truly hoping to meet fellow CHRIE members again in person after the difficult times. We were really looking forward to welcoming you and organizing this fantastic event and making it a great success and we certainly aim to make September 2021 memorable too. Furthermore, EuroCHRIE are developing new opportunities to stay in touch between now and September 2021 (more about this in a later communication).

We hope and believe that the global situation will change for the better in 2021 so that we will get the chance to welcome and show you the best of Aalborg and Northern Denmark in September 2021 (27th to 30th).
We are aware that the postponement of the conference is associated with a number of challenges for all, but in collaboration with the EuroCHRIE Board, we unfortunately saw no other way than to make this change. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We look forward to welcoming you all at the 37th EuroCHRIE conference 2021 in Aalborg!
