Registrations are now open for delegates and presenters

Registrations are now open. Due to security measures at the European Parliament, whether you are a delegate or a presenter, you will need to fill in two separate forms, the second of which will ask you for personal details including ID numbers, date of birth and nationality. This is the normal procedure. Therefore, when completing the generic registration, you will be prompted to fill a registration form for the "European Parliament session " . Plese ensure you complete both, otherwise access will be denied.

Places for the conference are limited, and priority will be given to ENSP members and partner organisations. We would therefore encourage everyone to register as soon as possible, and no later than Monday 21st March 2016, to avoid disappointment.
