European Human Exposome Network conference 2021

Programme

The virtual EHEN conference on 11 June 2021 includes two live-streamed invited speakers (with a live Q&A sessions after each talk), a pre-recorded invited speaker, thematic break-out sessions and two panel discussions.

During lunch we will organise a digital poster session for all scientists, in particular early career scientists, who would like to present their research to the exposome community.  Poster presenters are encouraged to upload a recorded flash talk with their digital poster.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. Information on the live stream and access to the platform will be provided a couple of days before the start of the event, to those who registered.

The programme is planned based on Central European Summer Time (CEST).
