We are very sad to announce that we cannot conduct the 25th WONCA Europe Conference and integrated DEGAM Annual Congress in Berlin as planned from June 24th to 27th 2020.
The current epidemiological and legal situation is outstanding and needs unconventinal solutions. Nobody of us knows how this situation will develop during this year.
In order to maintain our work as family doctors as well as researchers and teachers, we try our best to run a conference for WONCA Europe and DEGAM this year.
We have checked several possibilities and solutions for this very critical situation and will conduct as follows:
- The European Conference of Family Doctors in Berlin is postponed to December 17th to 19th 2020.
- The conference venue is changed to a more modern and recently built venue Hub 27.
Hub27 is located quite near to City Cube and has well equipped rooms with appropriate size.
In case of an official prohibition of larger meetings in Berlin at that time we could switch to a complete digital, remote Conference within a short time.
Although this is a very uncommon date we think that this is a good opportunity to reflect on the experiences of this year and to celebrate all the heroes working in our offices of General Practice/Family Medicine/Primary Health Care.
Hoping to see as many as possible from you in Berlin!
