Dear Colleagues,

We would like to inform you of the postponement of the 14th World Conference on Bioethics, Medical Ethics and Medical Law to a new date: 7-10 March, 2022 in Porto, Portugal.

The UNESCO Chair has decided on this postponement after lengthy discussions.

The decision to postpone from 2021 to 2022 stems from the need to preserve the participants’ lives and health during this difficult period of the corona plague. We are pleased to inform you that the conference will take place under the same conditions and at the same venue. We are confident that you will remain loyal to the UNESCO Chair and the World Conference.

We, for our part, undertake to retain the full rights you have acquired in the registration fee you have paid. This commitment applies both to your participation in the conference and to your accommodation at the hotel you booked (if at all). Bonus: The UNESCO Chair will hold a number of additional international projects virtually in 2021, which will be offered to all paid participants . This coming March, the Chair will host a virtual international conference dedicated to discussing ethical dilemmas which has arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Later in 2021, the Chair will hold a series of webinar meetings on various bioethical topics.
