Originally planned to be held as a physical congress in Vienna, ECR 2021 had to be transformed into an online event due to COVID-19. The congress is annually organised by the European Society of Radiology and attracts more than 15.000 participants every year.
Based on last year’s online experience, ECR 2021 presented new features in this year’s edition. Channel N° 1, the central fixed point, around which all other congress events revolved, hosted Pop-Up World Tour events, taking place in different cities across the world. One of the hosting cities was Ljubljana.
Prof. Dr. Maja Marolt Mušič, President of the Slovenian Association of Radiology, gathered eight Slovenian leading radiologists, who gave the audience a taste of how the research of radiology is carried out in Slovenia.
The Pop-up Slovenia event was held on March 6, 2021, at Studio GR20.20 in Ljubljana and was streamed to the studio in Vienna. The organisational support was provided by Toleranca Marketing, an event & marketing agency. Six speakers were presenting live in the studio, one speaker joined via Zoom, and one lecture was pre-recorded. Although the time slot was limited to 50 minutes, we found time to introduce our country through the “I feel Slovenia” video. The engagement of participants was enabled by Slido, an online quiz tool, integrated into the streaming platform.
