ECRA General Assembly 2020/21

The General Assembly 2020/21 is going to take place as Online Conference on 28th January 2021, 18:00 UTC (19:00 MEZ, 20:00 EET).
This meeting is organized by the ECRA Board.


Circular for the Online ECRA General Assembly


Last year was very extraordinary. Due to the Covid situation the president of ECRA postponed the annual meeting, planned in Cantabria / Spain. Independent of the almost daily changing situation our constitution requires the new election of the ECRA Board exactly in that challenging time. The ECRA Board has gladly taken up the suggestion of several members to organize an online General Assembly. This form of meeting brings some limitation on technical level and cannot substitute a meeting with all your activities on personal level. Therefore the ECRA Board looks already optimistic to a time, where we can met again at our already traditional event.

The Online Meeting will only cover the General Assembly, similar to the familiar shape, adapted to the technical limitations.

Please note this date in your diary!

Please visit also our website or send us an email to in case of any questions.
