ISPM 2020: The second edition of ISPM is postponed to Summer 2021

Feb 8, 2021

The school for project manager promoted by CoEHAR with a specific focus on harm reduction has been postponed to Summer 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Despite the effort of the organization, the current laws governing international travel and face-to -face lessons do not allow to perform the usual ISPM activities.

For this reason, the school decided to postpone the second edition to Summer 2021. ISPM 2020 officially becomes ISPM 2021.

Even in these unfortunate circumstances, the idea of networking and internationalization that drives the ISPM activity led to an online lesson during which the students had the opportunity to meet the speakers of the second edition.

Moreover, thanks to the online community, it is always possible to keep the spirit of ISPM alive: everyone will be able to share news from the field and job and training opportunities.

The ISPM staff has decided to keep its members and students updated on the travel restrictions to and from Italy.

In the map below, we provide an overview on the current restrictions for each country, taking into account that 29 students from 19 different countries will join ISPM 2021.  We hope that by Summer 2021 all members of ISPM will be able to reach Italy in complete safety.

Stay Tuned for ISPM 2021!
