The Polish Neuroscience Society and the Lithuanian Neuroscience Association have decided to hold the FENS Regional Meeting (FRM) 2021 as a virtual conference on 25 - 27 August 2021. 
While strongly hoping that the global health situation will have improved before next summer, the FRM Organising Committee has decided to move the event online to ensure all attendees can meet safely in the best conditions possible. The Organising Committee is now working on adopting the scientific programme to the virtual format. A strong focus will be placed on online activities that can promote scientific collaborations at a regional scale and allow the building of successful partnerships internationally. If circumstances permit, a satellite event will be organised in-person, onsite in Kraków (Poland).
The FRM Organising Committee is looking forward to the new opportunities offered by this inclusive virtual format and hopes it will allow a greater number of neurscience researchers and students to participate.
