Vienna Conference was a big success!

682 participants registered including 521 delegates and 161 exhibitors. 98% registered participants actually attended the conference which is a very good result.

Preliminary feedback on speaker presentations has been very positive with many people noting the high quality of the talks.

More conference feedback to follow soon.


Architects Acknowledged

At the closing ceremony, Manuel Morente (former President) and Pasquale De Blasio (founding President) were congratulated by Kurt Zatloulal and Jan-Eric Litton of BBMRI-ERIC. The four men originally developed plans for the collaboration between ESBB and BBMRI-ERIC at a meeting in Amman, Jordan in April 2014.

This led to signature of the 4 year collaboration agreement between the two organisations by Hans-Peter Deigner and Jan-Eric Litton in London last year.
