Keeping the social alive @ESB2021

Photo Contest

Our lives dramatically changed with the Covid-19 pandemic. The ESB2021 was no exception and ultimately we have made the sad but most responsible decision of going fully virtual. However, we do not want that one of the core features of ESB gets lost along this pandemic journey! Together with scientific excellence, ESB has always excelled in the social program of the event. 

Therefore, this year and keeping this spirit alive, WE’RE HOSTING A… PHOTO CONTEST! 

Until September 7th 23:59 CET, email us a photo to  that describes ESB to you! It can be a photo from a previous event, it can be a photo that you consider that captures the ESB spirit, it’s up to you! The juri will choose the BEST 3 PHOTOS and, of course, AWARDS will be given! 

Help us make ESB2021 an unforgettable virtual event!
