Science - Our Universal Language

Hotel Hesperia Tower - Hyatt
Barcelona, Spain
18 - 20 November 2020


For our 14th meeting, we plan to build a strong agenda focussing on the power of Science as our universal language.

In good tradition, and building on the success of 2019, we plan to include parallel workshops and “Rosetta-sessions”
