NorthTick-ESGBOR international webinar
on ticks and tick-borne diseases.

Due to the corona pandemic, the possibilities to attend scientific conferences and to present and share recent and ongoing scientific work are still limited.


This international webinar, which is a joint effort between ESGBOR, the NorthTick project and the Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Tick-borne Diseases, is designed to you an online opportunity to present your research on ticks and tick-borne diseases.  We especially encourage young researchers to present at the webinar.

Deadline for abstracts was October 17th and all authors will be notified, early November


The programme will focus on presentations of scientific work. There will also be short keynote lectures by experienced colleagues. We aim to include as many oral presentations as possible. If the number of contributions exceeds the capacity of the webinar, some of them will be presented as posters.


We look forward to receive your contribution!
