RNA Club 2023

Dear RNA Friends,
We are pleased to announce that the RNA 2023 Club will be held on October 27 at the Olšina Resort in South Bohemia at the foothills of the Šumava mountains. The scientific program will be a one-day event as usual, but this year there will be a highly recommended option to stay overnight and fully enjoy the social part of the event and the beautiful surroundings of the resort. 

Please save the date. Registration will open soon, we will keep you posted.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there.
