The 2020 EASO Policy Conference, due to have been held at the Renaissance Hotel in Brussels on 4 March, was postponed due to COVID-19. We look forward to hosting our popular annual Policy Conference in 2021; please stay tuned for further information.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience that the postponement may have caused, 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.

Although Belgium was considered a low-risk destination, we were aware of people’s increasing anxiety about meetings involving large numbers of international speakers and participants. We therefore preferred 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, took place via webinar on World Obesity Day, March 4.
