In November 2018, the IFAPP Academy was invited by Sandor Kerpel-Fronius to hold the annual face-to-face Steering Committee meeting at the prestigious Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary.
The IFAPP Academy Board Members, stakeholders, IFAPP’s secretariats, and the operations team gathered the first evening in Budapest to share a light dinner, a couple of drinks, and some good conversation.
The first morning of meetings kicked off with Professor Sandor Kerpel-Fronius, faculty at the Semmelweis University, giving us a history of the University, insider tips to the city, and an overview of the meeting agenda.
The Academy was excited to welcome Tim Aldwinckle, UCB representative, to the meeting. He was able to provide some great perspective in several areas of the discussion.
After a full day of presentations, the team enjoyed an amazing dinner at Budapest’s Museum Restaurant.
Day 2 of the meeting – Gustavo Kesselring and Xavier Luria discussed the strategic collaborations that the IFAPP Academy will be fostering in 2019. Peter Stonier also presented the updated contract with King’s College London. The afternoon was concluded with coffee and the recording of video testimonials starring some of the key representatives of the Academy.
It was a great few days in Budapest and wonderful for the team to be able to spend some quality time together and workout the logistics for a successful 2019 and beyond!
