Microscopy societies from 11 countries - Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland -, organised the digital Joint Meeting of Dreiländertagung and Multinational Congress on Microscopy. Led by the congress presidents Johannes Bernardi, Michael Stöger-Pollach and Stefan Löffler, Vienna University of Technology, MC2021 offered a comprehensive scientific exchange with a diverse program. New research results were presented in eight thematic sessions on life sciences, materials science, and instrumentation and methods by experts from all fields. As the only major electron microscopy meeting in Europe this year, MC2021 offered especially for the so-called "early-stage researchers" (ESRs) best opportunities for an international scientific exchange to develop, network and gain new insights. A large number of younger researchers took the opportunity to present their work with exciting talks.
