 “The IPPA winter school was an amazing experience. I have no words to describe my satisfaction, the quality of the workshops, the location, the extra-activities and the quality of the interactions with the lecturers and the other participants present at the event exceeded my expectations. Congratulations to every single of you involved in its organisation. You were great! I look forward to other IPPA events”.
