 The progression of the pandemics is particularly uncertain, even for next September/October.

According to a consultation of our academic partners (ULB and ULiège) as well as our NGO partner MSF, we decided :

  • To delay the two last HSAE sessions (originally planned for September and October 2020) in MAY 2021.  
  • To organize these two sessions within one week from Monday 3/5/21 to Saturday 8/5/21 (date of evaluation).

The precise planning of this 3-8 May 2021 HSAE session will be organized in next September.
