Creating a real get-together
This year all our conferences have been cancelled or postponed, but, as promised, we are working with our partners worldwide to make the European Research Reactor Conference from 11. – 15. October 2020 in Helsinki, Finland, a real Gathering of the Research Reactor Community.
We would like to create an event that offers enriched knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. All currently accepted authors of the European Research Reactor Conference will have the opportunity to update and amend their contributions and include new findings and developments.
In addition, we invite authors, who this year didn’t have the opportunity to present their projects and share their knowledge, to submit their abstract. We will soon open the Call for Papers again and offer the possibility to submit an abstract until 28 August 2020. This offer includes the possibility to opt for a remote participation.
We hope to gather as many members of the research reactor community as possible in person in Helsinki, in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. We will keep a close eye on the advice of the World Health Organisation, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and we are working with our Finnish partners to ensure an organisation according to those guidelines.
Still, not everybody will be able or will not want to join us in person. We will therefore offer the possibility to participate remotely, with a rich mix of on-demand content, live discussions as well as live streaming from Helsinki. Networking, discussions with authors, a chat next to the coffee machine? It is not really the same online. It is different and we see opportunities and have some ideas you might like.
