New conference in autumn 2020

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our face-to-face Member Conference on 26-27 March due to governmental and university guidelines regarding COVID-19 (Corona-virus). We still consider a face-to-face Member Conference to be really important in the development of SDSN Northern Europe. Therefore, we are not really cancelling – but postponing – the Member Conference to the autumn of 2020 instead. Stay tuned!
