Virtual Marketplace

We are continuing the tradition from EBSN annual conferences of providing a space i.e. marketplace for sharing information and networking. This year the marketplace is hosted in an allocated section in the conference padlet. The Virtual Marketplace is dedicated to promoting interaction, networking, and sharing additional resources beyond those presented at the workshop talks.

Conference Declaration

The Conference Declaration is an important element of all EBSN conferences. You can find the first draft of the declaration in the conference padlet. Add you comments in the dedicated padlet post below and be part of the co-creation of the 2021 Conference Declaration!

Project Generation Facility

The EBSN Secretariat’s former initiative in supporting project generation among network members continues this year too. The Member Organisations’ diverse background represent a significant potential for partnership-building. The Secretariat wishes to further promote cooperation among EBSN Members and beyond. Make sure to visit the conference padlet‘s respective section and share your ideas for future projects or find partners. 


EBSN Secretariat continues to promote interaction and a sense of cooperation and belonging to EBSN Members! We have organised the first Café this year and we are planning the next one at the end of the year!
