2020 Interbull Online Meetings





The 2020 Interbull Annual meeting has been cancelled due to the risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.  As disappointing as this may be, this decision was made to protect the health of everyone involved.

The next ICAR/Interbull meeting will be held from 26-30 April 2021; in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.

To address topics that we, under normal circumstances would have addressed during the 2020 Interbull Business Meeting, a set of documents, videos and online meetings are available to you.


  • Reports and Strategic Plan


As in previous years, you will have access through the Interbull website to the Interbull Centre Activity and Finance Reports


Resulting from the January 2020 Interbull strategic planning meeting in Uppsala a Draft Interbull 2020-2023 Strategic Plan and a concise Draft Interbull 2020-2023 Strategic Plan Executive Summary are now available for review.


These outline the key strategic goals for the next three to five years, and we seek your feedback on these draft plans.  We would appreciate any comments you might have on either document, but the Executive Summary may be a good starting point as it provides a succinct overview of our direction.


  •  “Video on demand” to replace the Interbull 2020 Business Meeting


Considering that the Interbull community is a truly global community, and therefore operates in a wide range of time zones, we have created some videos as a substitute for the Business Meeting presentations.  You can then view these where and when convenient for you.

  • Online Q&A Meeting


Despite the drawbacks of being in multiple time zones, we would really like to hear from you in an interactive meeting. We foresee hosting two online “Interbull 2020 Question & Answer Meetings”, focussing on business rather than technical topics.


  1.  Online Interbull 2020 Q&A Meeting 1: Thursday 27 August, 09:00 CET.
  2. Online Interbull 2020 Q&A Meeting 2: Tuesday 8 September 2020, 14:00 CET.


To prepare a meeting that is of interest to you, we invite you to submit your feedback, comments and questions to no later than 20 August 2020.


Topics to be addressed during this meeting will be guided by the Interbull Community feedback and questions in response to our reports and videos.


Depending on your feedback, additional meetings on specific topics may be held in addition to the Online Q&A Meeting.


  • Registration


For organisational reasons and to help us anticipate the number of participants, registration for the Q&A meetings is mandatory.

Please register no later than 7th September 2020 through the following link.


  • Open Meeting


The topics for the Interbull Open Meeting in Leeuwarden were released in February 2020. In principle, these topics will still be in use for the Interbull Open Meeting in Leeuwarden, which now will be organised in April 2021.
