Cancellation of planned workshops and the Summit 2020

Dear VL-members,

Regrettably we have had to cancel the planned workshops and the Summit 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns. As your health and safety are our highest priority, the Supervisory Board has decided to cancel all workshops and the physical Summit 2020. In stead we are planning for a virtual Summit – still the 4th of June – with a number of the fantastic keynotes performing.

We will keep you closely posted, and hope that you will find time to check in on our site on the 4th of June – or any time later at your choice to watch the program which will be made available for free to all VL-members.

Stay safe and strong.
