EuroCHRIE conference in Aalborg 2020 postponed to September 2021

 

Due to the COVID-19 and the continued global travel restrictions and its various effects and the measures countries are taking to guarantee the safety of inhabitants, UCN in close collaboration with the EuroCHRIE board, has decided to postpone the Annual EuroCHRIE Conference 2020.

 

While all possible options, including hybrid forms, were explored to avoid postponement, COVID-19 travel regulations globally have presented a barrier for nearly all delegates to attend, and thus the joint decision has been taken to postpone the conference to September 27th – 30th in 2021, which will be held in Aalborg, Denmark.

 

EuroCHRIE is an important platform for networking, knowledge sharing, development and research. The annual conference is an important and sociable event, and we were truly hoping to meet fellow CHRIE members again in person after the difficult times. We were really looking forward to welcoming you and organizing this fantastic event and making it a great success and we certainly aim to make September 2021 memorable too. Furthermore, EuroCHRIE are developing new opportunities to stay in touch between now and September 2021 (more about this in a later communication).

 

Practical information regarding submission and registration:

 

If you have submitted a paper, poster and/or lecturer lounge we offer you the following three options about which you will receive further information in the next weeks:

1. Withdraw your paper, poster and/or lecturers lounge.

2. Present your paper, poster and/or lecturers lounge at EuroCHRIE2021 in September 2021.

3. Submit a new paper, poster or lectures lounge for EuroCHRIE2021

We hope and believe that the global situation will change for the better in 2021 so that we will get the chance to welcome and show you the best of Aalborg and Northern Denmark in September 2021 (27th to 30th).

 

We are aware that the postponement of the conference is associated with a number of challenges for all, but in collaboration with the EuroCHRIE Board, we unfortunately saw no other way than to make this change. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Weekly update on Covid-19 in Denmark (week 35)

 

Weekly update on Covid-19 in Denmark (week 35)

During the past week, the rate of new cases has slowed down and are now looking stable. This is most likely due to the new registrations, like the facemask in public transport as well as the high focus from the government and media.

The amount of new cases has been 245 in the last 4 days, which is a decrease when looking back at last week. This is happening, even though the amounts of tests taken are still high. The new cases are mostly the younger people who are having a hard time not socializing in bigger groups.

In Aalborg there has been 23 new cases the last seven days, which is a decrease since last week.

Weekly update on Covid-19 in Denmark (week 34)

 

Greetings dear delegates, here are the weekly-update regarding the covid-19 situation in Denmark.

The Covid-19 numbers has been increasing over the last couple of weeks but has now started slowed down. This can be explained with the very quick response by the government as well as people’s knowledge and familiarity with the guidelines.

The last three days Denmark have 361 new confirmed cases, off which 2 has led to hospitalization. The total amount of people who are hospitalized has fallen to 18 from last week. The hotspots remain to be around Copenhagen and especially Aarhus, where most of the cases are confirmed.

Aalborg keep having a low amount of new cases, in the last seven days there has been 30. The increase in cases can be an effect of the big increase in tests done and taken over the last couple of weeks.

Remember! Registration for the conference is open – sign up here: https://www.eurochrie2020.org/registration

Weekly update on Covid-19 in Denmark (week 33)

 

We continue to bring the latest and most important information about the Covid-19 situation in Denmark to keep you as a delegate updated and prepared for the conference in October.

 

We are still positive about the situation and believe that we will be able to carry out the conference, yet with some changes in the format and program as stated last week. More info will follow in the upcoming weeks.

 

During the last week, a lot has happened in Denmark. The government has postponed the re-opening due to an increase in Covid-19 numbers. However, the government will go far to NOT close the country.

 

The increase remains very low in Northern Jutland (Aalborg) and most of the recent cases has been in the capital Copenhagen and in Aarhus. There have totally been 230 new cases in the last 3 days and less than 20 people is hospitalized in total.

Deans and Directors Workshop, Monday 5 October

 

We are all going through an unknown and challenging time due to Covid-19. This requires new ideas and tools in management in relation to resources, new didactics and similar. In order to cope with these challenges, management is required to come up with, in some cases, drastically changes – so why not get together, share and develop new tools and products that can support and secure our future development at our institutions?

As a part of the EuroCHRIE 2020 conference Deans and Directors are invited to join a “working” workshop focusing on experiences, issues, challenges, and opportunities related to Covid-19 in an educational and industry context.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss, evaluate, develop ideas and tools that can support the tourism and hospitality institutions. The workshop will focus on the following topics: Resources, Social Relations, Future Students, New Didactics and other topics that the participants finds relevant.

The output of the workshop will be a central part of the upcoming workshops within the area of Educational Workshops, Practical Workshops and Research Workshops. Furthermore, “products” and tools should be developed in order to implement these after the conference directly at the institutions.

During the workshop you will be inspired by two speakers, who will deliver input regarding educational management and present cases about challenges, opportunities, needs etc. within the business perspective. The speakers will be presented later.

The workshop is included in the conference fee.

Monday October 5th, 10.00 am – 17.00 pm at UCN Campus.

More information will be provided later on the webpage.

Please do not hesitate to contact Birgitte Jørgensen for further information at bihj@ucn.dk

Update on Covid-19 (week 32)

As we aspire to be as safe and secure as possible, we will keep you updated on the Covid-19 situation in Denmark with weekly updates. This will be based on information from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and from The Danish Health Authority.

The conference committee remains optimistic about the current Covid-19 situation in Denmark and continues moving forward with the planning and organizing of the conference. We keep in close contact with The Danish Health Authorities and The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The situation regarding Covid-19 in Denmark is still stable and in control. However, there have been 203 new cases the last 3 days primarily in Copenhagen and Aarhus. In Aalborg and the Northern region of Denmark there have only been approximately 20 new cases. The latest numbers also show that approximately 25 people are admitted to hospitals.  

Even though the numbers seem “low” the Danish authorities act on the slight increase and take all necessary precautions to limit the numbers. One of the initiatives is the requirement of wearing face masks in public transportation during rush hour in the more dens populated areas such as Copenhagen and Aarhus.

 

We will get back with an update next week. Stay safe!
