COVID-19 Statement

In order to minimise the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Champalimaud Foundation is closely following the evolving situation, and the recommendations from the World Health Organisation and the Directorate-General of Health, particularly regarding international events that bring people together from around the world.

To this end, and to guarantee the safety of all, the organising committee has a virtual contingency plan so the symposium may take place according to what is safe and practicable given the public health scenario at the time of the meeting.

Students and researchers are invited to pre-register for news & updates and for submitting their work. No payment required.
