Policy Conference Postponement

It is with great regret that due to the increasing concerns about the spread of covid-19, EASO has taken the decision to postpone its Policy Conference, which was due to have been held at the Renaissance Hotel in Brussels next Wednesday.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause, but we are sure you will agree that the health and safety of our members, participants and all those involved, must be our highest priority.

Belgium remains a very low-risk destination, but we are aware of people’s increasing anxiety about meetings involving large numbers of international speakers and participants. We therefore prefer to take a precautionary approach and to potentially help to contain the virus. The conference will be rescheduled at a later date to be determined.

The launch of the Obesity Policy Engagement Network, OPEN EU, which had been scheduled to take place at an event at the European Parliament on March 3, will now be held online on World Obesity Day, March 4.
