ECTN General Assembly 2022

ECTN General Assembly 2022

It has been decided that the 2022 General Assembly of ECTN will take place at the Institute of Food Science and Technology, Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Buda Campus, Budapest, Hungary on 8 – 9 April, 2022. The meeting will be organised jointly by the Institute for Food Science and Technology (Chaired by Livia Simon Sarkadi) and the Hungarian Chemical Society.
As you see, we have moved the date back to April as has been the usual time of year for the meeting except for the past two years when the Covid pandemic upset our arrangements.
We are very hopeful that the pandemic situation will allow the meeting to go ahead as planned. We will make a further announcement at the end of January 2022 to confirm this or to provide alternative arrangements if necessary.
Please reserve these dates in your diaries now. We are planning a programme over two full days (Friday and Saturday) that will be attractive to all members.
