With our first fully digital conference now under our belt, we would like to thank every one of you who made this year’s pioneering event a truly special one! 

We had two very rewarding days, filled with interesting sessions, posters and meet the experts networking lounges, as well as interesting virtual booths in the exhibition. 

We had many stimulating discussions with people from all over the world, and we were really happy to witness the dawn of new research networks. With 251 participants from 22 countries, we are delighted that we have managed to redesign the agenda from the ground up enabling to share as much of the scientific input as possible from the 253 submitted abstracts. 

A special thank you also goes to all our fantastic key note speakers and the oral presenters who did an outstanding job in recording their presentations for our virtual venue.
