EUROMAT goes virtual for 2021

Today, ASMET has taken the decision to move the FEMS EUROMAT conference to an online format.

Join us on 12–16 September 2021 online as we welcome you to our new format. With this in mind, the Scientific Committee for EUROMAT 2021 has now extended the abstract deadline until 31 March to allow more time for those wishing to submit an abstract to do so.

Gerhard Hackl, Chief Executive of ASMET and FEMS President, Prof Eric Le Bourhis said, 'Despite the progress of the vaccination rollout across Europe, EUROMAT  2021 had to be moved online to ensure the safety of our delegates’ as our number one priority and make the event more accessible to everyone as an online format. We hope to see many of you there.’
