Invitation to the General Meeting 2021

In the Extraordinary General Meeting on 18.06.2021 it was decided to postpone the Technology Forum 2021 to spring 2022. Therefore, and also because of the ongoing situation around Covid19, it is no longer possible to keep the decision of the General Meeting of 30.09.2020 and hold the General Meeting in September 2021 in Luxembourg. As already discussed in the Extraordinary General Meeting on 18.06.2021, our meeting will therefore take place online again this year.

The virtual General Meeting will take place on 24.09.2021 at 11.00 CET. The meeting will be held in English.

By 09/21/2021, we will provide handouts by mail and for download from our website.

By 21.09.2021 you will receive another mail with your personal dial-in data for the virtual General Meeting. If you have not received this mail by 22.09.2021, please request your access data from: .

If, after the opening of the General Meeting at 11:00 a.m. on September 24, 2021, we notice that less than 50% of the voting members attend the virtual meeting, the meeting will be deemed not to have a quorum. The virtual meeting will then be held, in accordance with the rules of the association, 30 minutes later with the same agenda. You can use the same dial-in data for this as before. The General Meeting will then have a quorum regardless of the number of members dialed in.

For further information, please refer to the agenda, which is an integral part of this invitation.
