I (Franziska) travelled to Bilbao on Sunday and the flight from Frankfurt was nice and without any turbulences. At Bilbao airport I already met some participants of the meeting who were easy to identify by their posters. From the bus that took us to the city center we had a nice view of the Guggenheim museum.

The next three days were packed with interesting talks about delivery, model systems and toxicity, a poster session and lots of discussions.
Of course networking did not come too short. On Monday we went out for a Pintxos Crawl which included a sightseeing tour with visits in three bars that serve basque Tapas that are called Pintxos.

All in all it was a very exciting meeting and I met so many nice people. I’m looking forward to see everyone again next year!
