ISSCR announces RFP for European co-sponsorship of the 2021 annual meeting

  • 2 March, 2016

The ISSCR annual meeting is a cornerstone of the Society. It provides a core forum for dissemination of ground-breaking research in all areas of stem cell science and translation, with participants from academic, industry, ethics and government settings world-wide.

One of the Society’s objectives is to choose venues for the annual meeting that reflect its international character, as well as allowing the ISSCR to highlight the contributions of the scientific community in the host region. Currently, the practice is to hold annual meetings at venues outside of North America every third year and to alternate these meeting sites between Europe and Asia. The ISSCR Board of Directors has expressed the desire to hold the annual meeting in Europe in June 2021 with the support of co-sponsorship from a prominent regional stem cell community. The board invites proposals from a local bid committee.

Important deadlines:

  • Letter of intent received by 15 July, 2016.
  • Full proposals will be received until 1 October, 2016.
  • The location will be selected by the Board of Directors in early 2017.
