Due to ongoing uncertainties surrounding the current pandemic regulations, the faculty of CVNUK have decided to replace this year’s physical conference with an online webinar. It will feature a variety of talks, focusing largely on specific Covid-19 related topics.
The updated timetable of the day will be released closer to the time.
