Joint meeting BeSHG, NVHG and Genetics Retreat 2022

We are pleased to announce the two-day BeSHG/NVHG annual genetics symposium, to be held on 21st and 22nd April 2022 at the Bruges Meeting & Convention Centre (BMCC).

This two-day symposium will be preceded on 20th of April 2022 by the Genetics Retreat (previously known as the Rolduc meeting).

The 2022 genetics symposium will be organized jointly by the Belgian Society for Human Genetics (BeSHG) and the Dutch Society for Human Genetics (NVHG). We hereby continue a tradition we started in 2016 to have a joint meeting every 3 years. As usual, the NVHG symposium is organized in collaboration with the VKGL, VKGN and NACGG. Please note that neither BeSHG nor NVHG will organize a separate meeting in 2022. So, this is your only national genetics symposium in 2022. We hope to maximize the number of participants to this joint meeting.

The theme of the meeting will be “New advances and tools towards personalized medicine of genetic disorders.”: a field of medical genetics that is evolving fast with emerging genomic technologies.

Together with the organizing committee of the Genetics Retreat, we call upon young researchers (PhD students) to attend both meetings.

BMCC ( is brand new, modern convention center (opening January 2022) in the heart of historic Bruges, which offers a unique experience.

 Abstracts should be submitted before February 15, 2022 through the BeSHG-website following the published guidelines. The final program of the meeting will become available towards the end of March.

Registration page will open mid of December.
