Dear ESB members,
We hope you and your families are well and safe.
In spite of challenging times, the ESB remains committed to public health and the fight against the novel coronavirus disease. We would like to gratefully acknowledge the work done by the health care professionals, including some of our own members. There are interesting initiatives within our Community that are trying to help: OxVent are building rapidly deployable ventilator prototypes in Oxford; Materialise created a 3D printed hands-free door openers to minimize potentially risky contact, etc.
In the following days, we will continue with the ESB activities programmed where possible. We have a Webinar about FE-Bio through our Youtube Channel (30th March, info here) and hope many of you will be able to come together safely and learn in that way.
You will understand and likely experience yourself the pace at which conditions currently evolve within Europe and across the world; the ESB will have to respond to these conditions. We are actively evaluating the best way forward for the ESB conference planned for July in Milan, and will communicate if and how plans change by Easter the latest.
Stay safe and healthy
