Welcome address from the conference chairwoman

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society for Animal Cell Technology I am delighted to invite you to join us in Lisboa, Portugal, for the 27th ESACT meeting to be held from 26th-29th June 2022.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemics, our conference, previously planned for June 2021, was postponed to 2022. This decision was based primarily on the responsibility the ESACT committees for the health and well-being of all ESACT conference attendees, participating in the networking that plays a key role in the success of ESACT conferences.
 
In 2022, ESACT will be celebrating 46 years since the first conference. ESACT2022 motto (Advanced Cell Technologies: Making Protein, Cell, and Gene Therapies a Reality) reflects all the challenges set out with the establishment of ESACT for advancing the implementation and use of technologies that revolutionise a medical revolution. As at previous ESACT conferences, the program will be designed to provide access to the latest innovations, advances, tools and equipment in Cell Technology.
 
With all we have faced during the global pandemic, ESACT 2022 will present extra incentives to celebrate life and the opportunity to meet together face-to-face. Because we have vaccines (proudly Portugal has one of the highest Covid-19 vaccination rates in the world) we will ensure that everybody will be, and feel, safe at the conference. All the rules from the Health authorities will be in place. We will complement the more traditional schedule that promotes interaction and networking opportunities among all participants, with some surprises with different and innovative activities.
 
The meeting will take place at The Lisbon Congress Center. This venue is located in one of the most striking areas of Lisboa, by the Tagus River, near the Belém tower, facing its beautiful red bridge… these intense elements influence the meeting logo. The facilities in the venue will enable to run the meeting efficiently, providing good proximity between the auditorium, the trade exhibition & posters and the catering.
 
You will also experience the kindness, culture and warmth of the Portuguese people that, with all the Latin hospitality, will commit to offer you a very pleasant stay.
 
We believe that all these ingredients will together make ESACT 2022 a most enjoyable, fruitful and unforgettable experience. We are certain that you will take home many unforgettable memories with you.
 
So, please SAVE THE DATE!
We look forward to meeting you in Lisboa in 2022.
 
Sejam bem vindos,

Paula Alves
