As in previous years the SSIEM Academy course, for clinicians and laboratory scientists working in inborn errors of metabolism, will be held over 2 days. Teaching will be as interactive as possible and in addition to lectures will involve workshops and case discussions.

Attendees of previous Academies are very welcome to apply for this year's course and we would like to have representatives from as many countries as possible. However as places are limited to 40 for each course (clinical and laboratory science), if the Academy is oversubscribed there may be a selection process.

Accepted delegates will also be asked to pay a small registration fee (100 Euro) for the Academy. Academy registration includes:

• Lunches on the 20th and 21st April
There will also be an evening meal for all Academy attendees on the 20th April 2020 for which there will be a nominal fee of 16 Euro.
