It fills me with sadness that we had to cancel our spring face-to-face (F2F) conference in Riga. It’s been 1 ½ years since our last in-person meeting! Yet we hope that we at least will have the chance to meet in Cascais this autumn.
But I also have good news to report!
First, we are aiming for an outstanding virtual conference this May wherein we will have even more options to interact with each other than we did at the virtual conference last November. Furthermore, we will have many speakers from outside of Europe, something we could not afford at regular F2F conferences. The conference will be held May 4 to May 7 and will be structured similar to a F2F meeting. We will have an opening ceremony, an annual meeting, a Freelance Business Forum, expert seminars, a symposium on “New Trends in Clinical Trials”, and other seminars. This will be followed by two weeks of offering up to four workshops a day. Second, I am happy that we can address many of the suggestions we received from the online survey:
