The latter will be organized by our partners, Dr. Silvia Anghel (Medidee) and Prof. Didier Maillefer (HEIA-VD). Looking forward to meet you again and enjoy an exciting conference program as well as good networking! The sunny Valais is awaiting you – also with a social event so typical for this beautiful region!
