"The event was very well organised, and it allowed us to have direct interaction with the speakers despite not being "on site". The scientific quality of the presentations was extremely high."
"The course has brought me a lot. I had already taken part in the course in 2017 and this time I learned something again that will influence me in everyday life. The speakers are very competent and showed interesting cases."
"This has been an amazing virtual workshop."
"Thank you so much. High quality presentations. Very approachable experts."
