The meeting will officially run from 10:00 – 12:00, but you are invited to arrive from 09:30, and will be able to continue your discussions at the venue after 12:00.

As usual there will be a roundtable and lots of time for discussion, so please register and come prepared to share ideas, lessons, challenges and solutions!
