Possible future scenarios due to COVID-19

We realise that to register for a conference is way out of mind for most of us due to the dramatical new circumstances. Nobody knows at this stage if international meetings can take place or if it is even safe to attend.

At the same time, we think it is important to catch up and discuss our experiences and everything else within and beyond harm reduction whenever we can.

Therefore, we keep on preparing the 5th European Harm Reduction Conference. We – together with the venue – will take all necessary hygienic and safely measures to reduce COVID-19 infection risks. Therefore, the number of participant acceptance will be reduced to affordable numbers in order to ensure social distancing if necessary. At the same time, every participants is responsible for own protective measures of course.

Closer to the date of the conference, we will announce opportunities to follow certain sessions of the conference by video streaming for those, who cannot attend.

In case the conference cannot take place on the envisaged dates, we plan to organise virtual conference sessions between 4 – 6 November and to postpone the face-to-face-conference to 2021.

Your registration is valid for the postponed event as well but the registration fee also can be re-funded. Please be aware that hotel and flight bookings can be refunded in almost all cases as well.
