EWMA Conference 2018

Activities of EWMA International Partner Organisations

EWMA International Partner Organisations came together for the 1st EWMA International Partner organisations meeting during the EWMA 2017 Amsterdam conference. One of the proposals made by the partner organisations was for EWMA to elaborate an overview of major activities currently being planned by the partner organisations and make this available on the EWMA website.

The overview, which currently includes the following activities, will be updated regularly.
