escdd2020 cancelled! mark the date for the 2021 edition!

The rapidly increasing impact of COVID-19 has made us decide to cancel the upcoming European Symposium on Controlled Drug Delivery, which was planned for April 2020.

Unfortunately, several speakers as well as a number of delegates have recently indicated they will no longer participate in the symposium. We foresee that this number will only increase in coming weeks, while the likeliness that delegates are restricted in their travel plans increases rapidly.

We therefore decided to take our responsibility in preventing further spreading of the corona virus through our symposium and cancel it.

We are grateful for your commitment in making an important contribution to ESCDD. We understand that this decision will cause inconvenience and we have committed to reimbursing the paid registration fee.

We are motivated to continue organizing this successful symposium and we can confirm that a new date has been set. We hope you will once again consider attending the symposium.


Best wishes,
On behalf of the ESCDD2020 Organizing committee,
Jos Paulusse
