18 Nov - 19 Nov 2020, Online Conference | Die Akademie Fresenius GmbH
+++ ONLINE CONFERENCE +++
For many years, the Akademie Fresenius FCM Conference has been the perfect platform for bringing together the scientific, industrial and regulatory communities. With the COVID-19 crisis, it has become difficult to gather physically. However, since we all need to continue to learn from one another, we have decided to keep up our dialogue in the virtual space. We therefore cordially invite you to join this year’s Online Conference. Plenty of exciting presentations are awaiting you! And they will all be accessible from the comfort of your home or your office, thus reducing travel on the one hand and increasing accessibility on the other hand. We are looking forward to meeting you!
