Pre conferences / WEON

Pre conferences

The VvE organises a number of pre-conferences prior to the WEON. The themes of the pre-conferences are topical and specifically aimed at certain target groups, such as public health epidemiology or epidemiology education.

On June 2, 2021, the following online pre-conferences will be held (the pre-conferences are offered by the VvE at no cost to WEON participants):


The epidemiological congress has been organised annually since 1979. This congress offers (young) epidemiologists the opportunity to present and discuss the results of their research on a national level. The WEON also offers space for networking.
