VegMed Web 2021

28 February–2 March 2021

Due to  the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting public restrictions, the VegMed consortium initially postponed the conference from 2020 to 2021. After careful consideration, we have now decided to host VegMed 2021 as a web conference instead of a physical event.

An online event is currently the best and safest solution. At the same time, a web conference will also create new opportunities. VegMed Web 2021 will be an international event that explores the most pressing topics, featuring top speakers in the field of plant-based nutrition research and practice. Using the latest digital tools, VegMed Web 2021 will be an interactive conference that provides ample space for personal exchange, along with an on-site conference atmosphere. With the climate crisis being the number 1 threat to global health, we are very happy to create a conference format which is open to attendees from all around the world, without the heavy ecological downside of traveling. An online conference also allows us  to make VegMed even more international, including more perspectives, research, and examples of successful implementation of plant-based nutrition in medicine from all around the world.

About 80% of the speakers who had originally planned to attend VegMed 2020 have already confirmed their participation in VegMed Web 2021. Here you can find the preliminary programme.

Continuing medical education (CME) points

Previous editions of the VegMed have been CME-certified by the Berlin Medical Association (ÄKB). CME certification has already been confirmed for VegMed Web 2021.

This website will be revised shortly, with more details about VegMed Web 2021 to follow.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why will VegMed 2021 be hosted as a web-conference?

As you probably suspect, we took this decision due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the various restrictions and uncertainties we are all facing, particularly related to large events. Just like you, we were very much looking forward to VegMed 2020 and VegMed 2021 as on-site events in Berlin and regret that, after more than two years of preparation, this unique programme cannot take place physically as originally planned. At the same time, we would like to ensure that everyone’s well-being is protected during this global health crisis. Additionally, a web conference is more climate efficient than a physical conference, since speakers and guests do not have to travel in order to attend. A web conference also gives the organisers, the speakers, and the attendees much more certainty in terms of planning and allows participants to join the conference from all over the planet, either live or at a time that suits them. The ticket includes access to recorded live videos for three month following the event.

The personal exchange and networking among health professionals, researchers, and students is very important to us and has helped shape previous VegMed conferences. VegMed Web 2021 will use the latest digital tools to create an on-site conference atmosphere and allow all participants to engage with experts and colleagues. With the opportunity to include more speakers and attendees from around the world than ever before, VegMed 2021 will become even more of a space for scientific exchange around plant-based nutrition and medicine.

What will the programme look like and which speakers will attend?

The VegMed Web 2021 programme will be even more engaging, interactive, and international. Around 80% of the speakers who had originally planned to attend VegMed 2020 have already confirmed their participation in VegMed Web 2021 (including Dr Michael Greger, Dr PH Walter Willett, and Team Sherzai). Additionally, we are aiming to include more international top speakers at VegMed Web 2021, since the digital format allows us to feature speakers from all parts of the world.

Various digital tools will allow us to make VegMed Web 2021 especially interactive, with lively panel discussions and vibrant exchange among the attendees,  speakers, and participants.

Here you can find the preliminary programme.

VegMed Web 2021 will be an exciting event that looks at the most pressing topics, aligned with current research and all recent developments in the field of plant-based nutrition in medicine.

Who is allowed to access the conference?

The VegMed Web 2021 programme will be presented to the professional audience (physicians, medical students, scientists, nutritionists and related disciplines, people in academic healthcare professions) within the three days of the conference. In addition to the live panels and lectures, recorded webinars will be available in a video library. Many lectures will be available and accessible online for three months without extra charge.

Interested laypeople will be able to purchase the recordings of some exclusive conference events via video-on-demand after the congress.

Are the tickets I have already purchased still valid?

Your tickets for VegMed 2020 will remain valid for VegMed Web 2021. About 80% of the speakers who had originally planned to attend VegMed 2020 have already confirmed their participation in VegMed Web 2021. You will benefit from even more speakers and a more interactive conference format. We would be very grateful if you would refrain from cancelling your tickets. By not cancelling, you will be supporting us as a non-profit consortium in meeting the current challenges so that we can continue to host such valuable events in the future. Thank you for remaining registered for VegMed Web 2021.
