CEENQA Workshop and General Assembly 2020 – postponed

Due to the coronavirus the CEENQA GA and Workshop will not take place on 14-15 May 2020 as was previously scheduled.

Effective from 10.03.2020 until further notice, all events with international participation are cancelled by a general directive for state administration in the Czech Republic. This is a pre-emptive measure to contain the virus and prevent its spread. It is not known for how long this measure will be in place but it disallows taking any further steps in the event´s planning and organization at the moment.

Considering this and the rapidly changing developments regarding the coronavirus in Europe, the CEENQA Board has unanimously decided to postpone the GA and Workshop to fall 2020. The Board will monitor the situation in Europe closely and communicate details about the postponed event as soon as circumstances allow.

CEENQA apologizes for the inconvenience and hopes to hold a successful meeting later this year.
