Rik Vera (Keynote speaker)

“This year we are looking at a key edition of our annual Congress: On the eve of the European elections, the Europatat Congress will offer participants the possibility to discuss with European legislators and politicians, and other sectorial colleagues about how the sector should transition to the new decade.”
