We hope you are in good health! We all find ourselves in the extreme and unprecedented situation of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the light of the recent developments we feel called to postpone the 12th ESEE Dialogue Conference. The conference would have taken place in Sofia, Bulgaria in cooperation with the European Mining Business Forum and EUMICONHowever, we will stay at home and thus together with the EIT and EIT RawMaterials support the decision taken by the WHO and the European Commission. To limit the number of severe cases of the disease and to prevent our healthcare systems from being overwhelmed, we need to act together! We will keep you informed about a new date of the conference here and through our newsletter.
