The BMA7 (7th Biannual Meeting of ANSP) will not now be held in May 2015 as planned. The meeting has been postponed until the 2nd half of the year, and should take place in October 2015, along with the 8th meeting, at the FMUSP (Universidade de São Paulo – School of Medicine), in São Paulo, State of São Paulo.
The meeting has been postponed as a cost-cutting measure due to this year’s economic situation. On the one hand, with a drop in state revenues forecast for this year, it was necessary to trim 10% of ANSP’s budget for 2015 (in line with all São Paulo State government bodies). On the other, as businesses are also suffering from economic stagnation, it was not possible to obtain sponsorship for two meetings this year.
The Coordinators of the ANSP project, in order to reassure members of its ecosystem and all those who are already aware of the excellence of the activities of BMAs, wish to make it known that the meeting in the second semester will offer all the activities that were planned for the meetings of the first and second semesters of the year plus the second edition of the SwitchOn Workshop – São Paulo.
