Dear colleagues,

We hope you and your families stay safe and healthy.

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and corresponding travel restrictions, we are getting in touch to let you know that the National University “Odessa Maritime Academy” has made the difficult decision to postpone the ETC-2022 Forum for 17th – 18th May 2023.

While we know this is disappointing, we hope you understand this is a necessary step to help keep each other safe in these unprecedented times.

We’ll keep you posted if anything changes, and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
