Welcome to the Virtual Conference ESTSS 2021

The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought many unexpected changes in our lives. Right now, we are experiencing a world of unpredictable limitations, difficulties and challenges, but also new opportunities. The current pandemic is a significant global public health challenge which has had an unprecedented impact on people’s lives and well-being. Therefore, it has never been more important to come together and discuss the latest research findings and clinical work experiences related to the global pandemic.

which will take place from June 17th to 18th, 2021 (with preconference workshops on June 16th).
