Invitation to

ESPN 2020 Virtual Meeting

Dear Colleagues,
Dear Friends,

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we are all in a very unusual and challenging situation. We are closely following the updates and recommendations from the reliable sources.

Unfortunately we cannot predict what the situation will be in September 18, 2020. The health and safety of all members, staff, and all other participants is utmost important for us. In fact, it is uncertain if a safe travel will be possible all over Europe and whether people can make participation possible due to the challenging conditions at home.

Taking account the safety, health, travel, and ethical issues the ESPN council decided to postpone the ESPN congress 2020 in Ljubljana to 2022. In September 2020, we will hold a short virtual meeting with some of the key note lectures allowing to honor ESPN pioneers and eminent figures of pediatric nephrology Prof. Michel Broyer and Prof. Lluis Callis who we have lost in 2020. We will also have a shortened Junior Class in 2020.

We thank you for your understanding and wish you, your families and all of your patients, health and well-being.
