Update on EuroCHRIE2020, Covid-19 and hybrid conference

We as the conference committee and the EuroCHRIE board are looking forward to welcome you in Aalborg in October for the 37th EuroCHRIE conference. We are highly aware of the global uncertainty related to the Covid-19 pandemic and would like to share some important information about the upcoming conference.


As the Covid-19 situation in Denmark and Northern Europe is getting as close to normal as it can be in these in these times, we are confident that we can carry through a successful academic conference with an extensive focus on the safety and health of the delegates.


Covid-19 status in Denmark

The situation in Denmark is becoming more and more normal, and at this moment there is only 20 people admitted to hospitals, there have only been 109 new cases the last 3 days, 0-1 deaths per day and the total number of deaths is just above 600. Looking at Aalborg and the northern region of Denmark there is only 25 confirmed cases.

To make sure that you as delegates is updated on the local situation, we are in close contact with the Danish Health Authority and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs weekly to be updated on the latest changes in Denmark and globally. Based on their recommendations and restrictions we adapt the entire conference and the conference venue and take the highest precautions to make the conference safe for the delegates. In addition, the conference hotel is certified “Covid-19 Safe-to-visit” according to the national hotel organisation Horesta’s certification.


To make sure that you as conference delegate feel safe both before and during the conference, we will send out weekly updates on the Covid-19 situation in Denmark and the conference. We will keep you updated through direct mail, Facebook, LinkedIn and on the EuroCHRIE2020 webpage.


Online conference setup and New Early Bird deadline

Due to the Covid-19 situation worldwide, we have decided to extend the Early Bird Deadline to the 10th of September, to offer you the time to plan in these uncertain times. Furthermore, EuroCHRIE2020 will be the first hybrid CHRIE conference ever, offered both in a live format for those who are able to travel for the full conference experience, and in an limited online format for those who cannot travel due to national travel restrictions. Further information about the online setup will be presented next week.


We hope to see as many of you in Aalborg or online in October. Stay safe – and stand together apart!

Important message regarding Covid19

We are all going through challenging times and we are facing a crisis we never thought possible. Right now, many of us are isolated in our homes, doing our best to help family members, friends, colleagues and students getting through these terrible times.

Our friends from ApacCHRIE have already been through this for a long time, while we in EuroCHRIE and the rest of the CHRIE familly just started facing the terrible consequences of the Covid19. We hope that you will remain safe and healthy, and together we can do what it takes to move our industry forward and overcome the untold consequences that we are currently facing.

We firmly believe that we are over this crisis when we open the doors to the EuroCHRIE2020 Conference in early October in Aalborg, Denmark. We as conference organizers hope that EuroCHRIE2020 will be the place where we can create new and innovative solutions together for the benefit of our industry. Even though universities and businesses are closed/closing we are still operating online and ready to receive questions, submissions etc. so don't hesitate to contact us.

Stay safe and let’s stand together apart!
