Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Stockholmsmässan (Congress Venue)

Meet with your fellow colleagues and further your work. Book a free meeting slot!

At the 23rd Congress of EHA, we are launching the EHA Meeting Hub; a ‘platform’ for new or existing networks where you can brainstorm, exchange new ideas and develop your work.

On Wednesday, June 13 the Hub will be open to academic, institutional, non-profit/ non-commercial/ non-governmental organizations and research networks working actively in the field of hematology.  These, closed-door, by invitation-only, meetings are intended to function as business-type meetings regarding the progress and organization of activities. Pharmaceutical representatives are not allowed to be invited to these meetings.

These meetings are not intended as a scientific session or press event for the publication of data. Pharmaceutical companies cannot apply for a meeting slot at the Meeting Hub, but can request an Industry Meeting Room through the EHA Congress Secretariat:
