Official statement from Congress President Christine Gaarder:
It is with great sadness and frustration we have to inform you that ECTES 2020 in Oslo is cancelled! Due to the severity and development of the COVID19 situation, the Norwegian Health Authorities have decided to close the congress center and have cancelled all meetings until the end of April so far.
> Official press release
This includes the ECTES congress and we are also forced to cancel all pre-congress courses. More official and detailed information will follow to all as soon as it is available (see also the ESTES website) from Conventus and the Executive Board.
Sorry about this and hope to see you in the near future.
Take care to all of you in this difficult situation!
Congress President ECTES 2020
