On Friday afternoon, November 29, there was a special symposium in honor of Prof. Mehls who has celebrated his 80th birthday in 2019. Moreover, our 4C study turned 10 years, so we had two reasons to celebrate! The symposium was held in the Print Media Academy right across Heidelberg train station. In the evening all attendees were kindly invited to the "birthday dinner" at the Goldener Falke restaurant at the market square.    

The ESCAPE network meeting took place on Saturday, November 30th from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. An agenda of the two meeting days can be found below.
