It is time to meet again as a network of like-minded people from in or out of our Modernet network.

MODERNET is the acronym for Monitoring Occupational Diseases and new and Emerging Risks in a NETwork. It is a dedicated network of researchers and occupational health professionals working on the monitoring of occupational diseases and the detection of new and emerging health risks at work.

Come to Haarlem, the Netherlands, on the 8th and 9th September 2022

We are pleased to announce the next Modernet meeting will be in person (if the virus will let us do so) in the Netherlands on 8 and 9 September 2022. It will take place in Haarlem, an ancient city close to both Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport. We started arranging the meeting, but it would be very good to know approximately how many people would like to join us. That is why we start already with a pre-registration for the meeting. Below the pre-registration form, you will find some extra information on our meeting.

Pre-registration Modernet meeting 2022

Please fill out the form below to RSVP. The only information we really require is your name and e-mail address.

By pre-registering, you allow us to know better how many people plan to attend the meeting. And although pre-registration isn’t binding, and you can withdraw your registration at any time, pre-registration before 1st of March 2022 will let you attend the meeting for the early-bird fee.

We will offer options for reasonably priced accommodation at and around the venue, but you have to book your own trip and hotel.
