The Vice Chairperson of the network, Research Manager Minna Keinänen-Toivola says that the arrangements and the outcomes of the conference worked very well.

– The COST AMiCI Pori conference was a success in every way. We even had two days of Finnish summer during the event!

In working groups on Wednesday, it was concretized how to proceed within these aspects in co-operation of academics, companies and healthcare facilities as well as regulators. Working groups will have their meetings in late 2017 - early 2018. The next conference will be organized in summer 2018.
