At this moment the Symposium is still scheduled to take place on May 14-15, 2020 and the EV Summer School is still scheduled to take place on May 11-13, 2020.

However, this might change as we cannot predict the course of COVID-19 pandemic in the world and in Estonia.

We are constantly evaluating the situation and we will update you on any new developments.

Stay safe and healthy!
