Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is a great honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 29th ESPU Congress in Helsinki in April 2018. Helsinki is the most northern capital in EU, and the spring is still very early in April. However, we do our best to make a warm and friendly event. The Congress venue is situated in the city center at the seaside. There are good train and bus connections from the airport to the city center. We have reserved rooms with reasonable price at the Congress hotel locating opposite to the venue. The hotel is within walking distance to the Welcome reception and the Gala dinner.
Finland is called a country with thousands of lakes and islands. The shoreline in Helsinki is a popular walking area with a view to the archipelago. Helsinki has also great shopping possibilities, Museums and other touristic attractions and of course public Finnish Saunas. I hope that you will see many old and new friends and have a possibility for inspiring discussions
You are very warmly welcome to Helsinki and 29th ESPU Congress.
Prof. Seppo Taskinen
Local Congress Chairman
