It is our pleasure to announce the 2021 meeting of the International Federation of Placenta Associations (IFPA) to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The Local Organizing Committee, the Scientific Program Committee and the European Placenta Group welcome you to attend the IFPA 2021 meeting which will be held at the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) from September 1st to 4th 2021.
We hope that by September 2021 all coronavirus restrictions have been lifted and we can have a safe meeting in Amsterdam. Because the IFPA 2020 meeting had to be postponed, apart from submitted abstracts, the program will remain similar to IFPA 2020. This includes plenary presentations, awards, symposia and workshops. All New Investigators who submitted a NI form for 2020 together with their submitted abstract will still be eligible to submit an abstract and register as a New Investigator for the 2021 meeting. Information on the Rotorua meeting originally planned for 2021 can now be found at www.ifpa2022.org.
Aim of the meeting
The theme of the meeting will be “Next Generation of Placental Research”. This theme has a twofold aim; firstly, it is chosen to emphasize the research performed by young investigators and give them a large platform to present their work. Secondly, the theme is to highlight all aspects of the large variety of next generation techniques present today or in the near future.
