The ENMC staff has not been idle over the past six months. We are proud to have hosted quite a number of virtual workshops in preparation of the face-to-face workshops, which were postponed to the fall of this year or even to 2022. In December, the ENMC Mid-Career Mentoring Programme was launched and we are happy to see that both mentors and mentee candidates are excited about this ambitious programme. We also launched an additional new type of ENMC workshops: Themed Workshops. You have been able to read about this new initiative in the June Newsflash, but please find more information in the July 2021 Newsletter.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on our life over the last year but the vaccination levels are rising and we have good hopes that we can leave this pandemic soon behind us. Countries are slowly opening up and travel will be possible again. ENMC hopes to welcome many of you again this year in the Courtyard Marriot Hotel in Hoofddorp or in the new back-up hotel The Element in Amstelveen, The Netherlands. In addition, we keep online facilities open for those of you who cannot travel yet to the Netherlands.
The holidays are coming closer and we wish you all a warm, relaxing summer.
