Wednesday & Thursday, 14-15 April 2021

Participation to the session will only be given online

Due to the uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic which is still spreading around the world, the Novel Construction Spring Session that was due to take place at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Athens, Greece on Wednesday and Thursday, 14-15 April 2021 has been replaced by an online session on the same dates. Please note: Athens will be retained as the venue for the Fall Novel Construction Session, which will be held from 27 to 28 October 2021. 

Due to the different time zones, the agenda for the meeting on Wednesday will start at 14:00 CET in the afternoon and will include presentations on the innovative developments.

The following day, all working groups will connect during the afternoon from 14:00 to 15:00 CET to discuss how to further develop the content of The Road to Success mobile application. Group presentations will then be given from 15:00 CET. 

All the presentations and group work will take place via Zoom video and audio conference. A link to the presentations will be sent to all registered attendees nearer to the date. 

If you would like to suggest a presentation for Wednesday afternoon, please submit the title of the presentation and a brief outline to Grégoire de Montmollin.
