Dear TEDD Partners,
We are delighted to share that registration is open for our first virtual TEDD Annual Meeting "10th Anniversary - 10 Years of Innovation in Tissue Engineering" on 22nd October 2020. Due to further safety measures with respect to COVID-19 we decided that the event on the 21st October onsite will not take place.

We cordially invite you to take an active part in this interactive event.

Kind regards
22nd October 2020 TEDD Annual Meeting "10th Anniversary - 10 Years of Innovation in Tissue Engineering"
This year we are providing a new exciting format - the online conference on the platform Talque.

The TEDD Annual Meeting 2020 on 22nd October is dedicated to cutting edge academic and industrial research. We focus on microphysiological systems (MPS) and its application in different fields, including research on the COVID-19 and the development of in vitro disease and infection models. The on-line event will not only provide presentations but also allow you to network. Each participant has an opportunity to matchmake and request virtual 1-1 meetings. Additionally, we provide the exhibitors with the possibility to present their services, and products and take part in the virtual exhibition sessions over the “lunch break”.
