COHEHRE Webinar – Thu 24.09.20, 16:30 CET



Ergonomically-friendly online lectures for both lecturer and students


At the start of the Corona crisis, many lecturers and students had to switch from real-life to online lectures, all of a sudden. As a result, the time spend on the computer and sedentary behaviour has increased. In this webinar we will, after going through some basics, offer practical tips and tricks on how to include principles of ergonomics in online lectures. This in order to reduce sedentary behaviour on the one hand, and encourage an ergonomic position while working on the computer on the other, for both lecturer and students.

2nd COTEC-ENOTHE Joint Congress, Prague, Czech Republic, Postponed to September 15-18 , 2021

Dear ENOTHE members,

Dear colleagues,

After thorough review and discussion between the Guarant, the Organizing Committee, the Scientific Committee, the COTEC Executive Committee and ENOTHE Board we have decided to postpone the 2nd COTEC-ENOTHE Joint Congress in Prague which was originally planned for September 2020.

Due to the current developments in the COVID-19 crisis we face too many challenges and risks to secure a good outcome of the planned conference. There is a huge variety in countries’ policies and measures to fight COVID-19 and it is for sure that we need more time after the summer before life will be somewhat alike it was. If not our way of way life has changed permanently.

We understand that this is unfortunate and it was a very difficult decision to make considering all the preparation work that has already been done, but it is a decision we need to make now.

Authors will shortly be informed via Exordo and registered participants by Guarant. We will provide more information about the next steps and keep you  updated on the consequences of postponing the COTEC-ENOTHE Congress.

Additionally, we would like to inform you that the ENOTHE board will have a next board meeting online April 23 and 24, in which we will of course discuss the above further and we will inform you on following steps regarding the planned General Assembly for this year.


On behalf of both boards, the Organizing  and  Scientific Committees we wish you all the best for now.

Stay safe and healthy!

Warm regards,

On behalf of the Scientific and Organising Committees,

Soemitro Poerbodipoero (ENOTHE President) & Anu Söderström (COTEC President)
