LYMEC Spring Congress 2021

Registrations are now closed! 

  Welcome to the LYMEC Spring Congress 2021 website! All relevant documents will be available on the documentation page together with the agenda of the Congress.   The Bureau decided to have the 2021 Spring Congress online. Because of dangerous mutations of the virus, young people being the last to be vaccinated, news on closing borders and increasing restrictions in many European countries, it is highly unpredictable to be able to bring together around 100 people in the same place and ensure that close contact can be restrained. The Bureau is therefore taking the responsible decision to favor people's health and moves the next Congress online.   The LYMEC 2021 Spring Congress will take place between the 23 and 24 of April 2021.  There is no pre-Congress seminar. The Congress will start on Friday and end on Saturday.   Programme
