- October 2020, Online

Dear SIOPEN family, friends and colleagues

We would like to invite you to the next SIOPEN Annual General Meeting which will be held Online on October 22st to 23rd, 2020.

We live exciting times in the field of neuroblastoma research in Europe, and the meeting will be a great opportunity to work on future and ongoing clinical trials and projects, enjoy enhanced interaction with clinicians and scientists working in the field in Europe, engage new young investigators, discuss the future strategy of our association and hopefully.

We feel confident that you will leave the meeting with a renewed sense of energy, inspiration, and focus on your work in the field of neuroblastoma.

We look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely
