Hong Kong and Beyond!

Dear Friends of EuroCHRIE,

Preparations for the first Joint International CHRIE Conference hosted by Hong Kong, PolyU (May, 22-25) and brought to you by the united EuroCHRIE – APacCHRIE federations are well underway. We have received a record number of papers and registrations and this is looking to be the largest conference under the ICHRIE banner yet. Our hosts have prepared an excellent programme for us all. Please make sure to check out the conference website

While the EuroCHRIE board elections are opening soon, and I would encourage all members to vote, the ICHRIE board member elections are now complete and I would like to congratulate all newly elected officers. Of course, I am particularly delighted that both Anders Justenlund (Director of Marketing) and I (Director of Networking) got elected.

Work on our new website has already commenced and you should be able to see some significant changes by the time of the joint conference in May. This will hopefully provide us a much improved platform to engage with you, our members.

Invitation to Host a EuroCHRIE Conference
Based on your feedback, our Director of Networking (James) and other colleagues on the EuroCHRIE Board, have updated our approach to awarding the EuroCHRIE annual conference.   We would only be delighted to assist you in preparing a conference bid, which can be for next year or for any time in the future.

We understand that the conference is the most important event for the Federation and its members. Therefore, we have introduced a simple process that supports a transparent approach. This includes an updated and simplified expression of interest form, a flat fee structure that is financially more attractive for host institutions and finally, an increased commitment from Board members to advise and support conference/host organisers.

We do hope that you will consider hosting a EuroCHRIE conference in the very near future, as we work with all members to deliver outstanding conference experiences for 2021 and 2022.

We are wanting to finalise our destination for 2020, so if you are interested in hosting this event, please complete the Expression of Interest by 30th April 2019. Details for Expression of Interests can be downloaded from the EuroCHRIE website at

In addition if you have any comments about the new documentation or questions about the application process then please get back to our Director of Conferences, Dr. James Musgrave,

We look forward to hearing from some of you.
