The EPF Executive is deeply shocked and concerned about the invasion by the Russian army and the war it has started in Ukraine, a free and independent country in the middle of Europe. We are concerned for the lives and physical and mental health of all the people affected in this humanitarian catastrophe, in which even a children's clinic and a clinic for expectant and birthing mothers are now being shelled and destroyed. These attacks on innocent people are an expression of a loss of all humanity. We demand and we hope for an immediate end to the war and the establishment of peace.
On behalf of the EPF Executive

Since late 2015 the EPF has its own house, situated on Rue Gérard in Brussels. The House is open to all members and candidates of EPF societies.
From September 2021 the events at the EPF House have been resumed, and we are very happy to return to in-person meetings. However, in order to ensure the highest possible level of safety, for all the participants it is necessary to follow the rules and current measures set by the Belgian government:
The participants of the House events will have to show the COVID-19 vaccination certificate or confirmation of recovery from COVID-19 disease.
