***Update***

After discussions with the organising committee for this event and the Executive Leadership team at GÉANT, we have taken the decision to cancel the Town Hall. Whilst there are no specific reasons why travel to Stockholm should be impacted, the situation regarding business travel decisions is changing daily, many organisations have implemented a travel ban and we wanted to make a clear decision so people can manage their plans and make appropriate cancellations. We hope to reschedule the meeting later in 2020. The meeting has now been rescheduled for the 27th - 28th October 2020.

Information on COVID-19

Whilst advice from the World Health Organisation has not substantially changed it is clear that many have concerns regarding the virus and how it may affect us and the recent outbreaks in Europe have added to these concerns.

In response to concerns about the safety of travel, whether by air or public transport, we would like to share the following information from the WHO website on the current understanding of how the virus is transmitted and suggest that you review the sections highlighted below.

Advice from WHO

  • How does COVID-19 spread?
  • What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of the disease?
  • How likely am I to catch COVID-19?
  • Should I worry about COVID-19?

There is further information on travelling during the coronavirus outbreak

GÉANT is actively monitoring the WHO advice and the situation in general in locations where GÉANT meetings are planned and will keep in contact with participants if the situation changes. Please do talk to your own organisations about their advice to employees on travel.

At the town hall meeting, presentations about hot and new Trust & Identity topics play an important role. Also, the town hall meeting is to informally discuss certain topics of current relevance. A full agenda is available on the eduGAIN wiki pages.
