ECR 2021 - status lige nu

Mange radiografer holder vejret lige nu omkring ECR2021, da vi ikke kender situationen omkring Covid-19. Her er hvad vi ved lige nu.

Af Claus Brix, fagchef


Ifølge sidste opdatering, er der stadig lidt håb at spore, og Radiograf Rådet håber stadig at der bliver mulighed for at besøge os på vores stand. 1. December 2020:


“Don’t give up on the idea of attending a “real” conference in the spring. That’s the message of European Society of Radiology (ESR) President Prof. Dr. Michael Fuchsjäger, who remains optimistic about a face-to-face congress happening in Vienna between 3 and 7 March 2021. A mass COVID-19 testing program is underway in the Austrian capital, and the outcome of the testing and the availability of vaccines look set to influence the final decision.”


“Should an onsite congress happen in March, the safety and wellbeing of delegates will be paramount, said Fuchsjäger, who is professor and chair of radiology at the Medical University of Graz. “Your safety is the ESR’s first priority, and we will strictly follow all decisions and recommendations of the Austrian authorities.”


The Austria Center is still reserved for the congress, so should regulations alter and/or vaccines become available, it is entirely feasible that an onsite meeting under strict local criteria could still take place, he added.


If ECR 2021 has to be virtual, however, delegates can expect “a completely new level of interactivity” for an online event. “That means, if you cannot come to us, we will bring ECR to you,”.


Pop-Up World Tour

When you cannot come to ECR. We will bring ECR to you.


ECR 2021 will feature a brand-new congress concept – the Pop-Up World Tour. This unique format will see sub-events hosted by the ESR’s closest institutional and industry partners in a variety of locations across the world. National onsite attendance at these events will be possible for specially invited guests and speakers. The Pop-Up World Tour will see a unique programme in each location, which will be streamed live to congress attendees, making ECR 2021 a truly global event.
