Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Due to the current COVID-19 situation and knowing that it might be difficult to meet in the Netherlands in June 2021, the FIG Working Week has been transformed into the FIG e-Working Week – in other words a virtual conference.

We are all coming to terms with and learning to adapt to our new, digital lifestyles and striving to maintain a semblance of normality, but the desire to see and hear from colleagues and friends becomes even more powerful when we are forced to be apart. FIG is determined to bring our global community together. Our world might be changing, but we still crave experiences and our desire to connect has never been stronger.

It is a real honour to host the FIG e-Working Week 2021. We are certain that we will host an event that surely will meet, if not exceed, all the expectations of a memorable and successful conference. We are working hard to ensure a smooth organization of the FIG e-Working Week 2021.

From the organizing side we will do our utmost to bring together an unforgettable conference with possibilities to make meaningful connections with our sponsors, attendees and speakers, as well as attend sessions designed to be interesting, innovative and engaging.

During the FIG e-Working Week 2021, we will put the ‘Smart Surveyor’ at the centre stage. We will do so by preparing current and future generations of professionals, by sharing knowledge about approaches which work, by bridging the technological and the societal perspective, by educating our workforce, and by strengthening and developing our profession.
