We hope you are safe and well. We’re writing to let you know that after serious consideration with the local organisers at the University of Lancaster, we have reached the difficult decision to cancel the 7th InsTED -Lancaster 2020. The health and safety of participants is our primary concern and the main reason we have made this decision. We want to thank you all for your trust and understanding. We are also grateful to Lancaster for leaving open the possibility that we may hold this event there another year.
With best regards,
