Announcement AETE virtual 2021

    In light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and its likely impact on travel restrictions and physical distancing requirements well into 2021, the board of the Association of Embryo Technology in Europe has taken the difficult decision to cancel the physical annual AETE conference in Dublin and instead provide this year a complete new online AETE experience.
    Because there is a continuous need to update scientific and practical knowledge and because a lot of highly relevant research has appeared during the past year, the AETE board has decided to organize a series of five webinars on the latest developments in embryo technologiesThese 1.5 hour webinars will be running between June and October. Three webinars may comprise one interactive lecture followed by live discussion with the audience. In September, we will hold two webinars that focus on short oral presentations, selected from the submitted abstracts in spring. So, even though there is no physical meeting, we still invite you to summarize your interesting research results and submit an abstract (deadline May 1st; instructions for abstract submission will follow). All peer reviewed and accepted abstracts will be published online in our AETE webinar proceedings.
    Many of you joined the AETE for its first virtual congress in September 2020, and the AETE will once again adapt the participant experience to the online world in order to offer the AETE community the opportunity for educational exchanges, scientific news and best practice updates, while protecting the safety and well-being of all participants.
    AETE Virtual 2021 will allow for even more live interaction during each webinar, as well as facilitating contact with our sponsors and European institutions and bodies that regularly work together with the AETE for scientific collaborations and projects. In this context, the AETE is reaching out to national embryo transfer societies all over Europe to stimulate their members to participate. The AETE webinars which will be free and open to everybody who subscribed. We further invite national societies to apply to join us in hosting one of our AETE webinars. Please get in contact with us at
    With no travel plans to consider and the flexibility to fit sessions around your professional and personal obligations, accessing all the scheduled webinars in their live formats through our dedicated platform will be more convenient than ever. The webinars form your opportunity to stay up to date on the latest developments in the field of embryo technologies.
    Join us in this new virtual experience and keep an eye on the new programme announcements in the coming weeks. Keep checking back at for further announcements.
