The 19th meeting of the PBSG was planned to be held in Copenhagen in June 2020. Due to COVID19 travel restricitions this meeting was postponed for a full year. As per January 2021 it looks like the situation around the Corona virus still will not allow for physical meetings in summer 2021. News will be published here as soon as there is an updated decision.

The PBSG status table is being worked on and a new table with new and adjusted criteria will be published soon, most likely no later than end of February 2021.
