First-timers Meeting

Room: Alsh

By invitation for first-time participants only

Sunday 2 September, 12:30 – 14:00

At this meeting, first-timers will be able to meet not only experienced congress participants but also representatives from FIP sections and special interest groups. This is a great opportunity for new attendees to exchange ideas, meet interesting people and get involved in FIP’s global network and the vast array of projects that FIP offers to all its members. 

During the First-timers meeting the Buddy-buddy programme will have its start, where you as a first timer will be introduced to your mentor with whom you share the same field of interest.
These small groups will stay connected during the congress and will be the start of your global network.
