Since the EERA Office has communicated about the cancellation of ECER 2020, many discussions have taken place between the link convenors of all the networks and also among the co-convenors team in the Network 27. During the co-convenors online meeting that we had in June, we decided that the network 27 will not organize online events during the“Reconnecting EERA” time in August. We thought it is better to save our forces to resource ourselves and prepare an exciting program for ECER 2021 in Geneva. The co-convenors of network 27 have had an online meeting mid-september in order to decide the topics that we would like to favour during ECER 2021. We also decided to invite three new colleagues to join the team, as 'ad interim' convenors. Their formal election will be done during the next General meeting in Geneva.
