Think and work on new structures of doing necessary activities for patients. It was a very intens and fruitful congress witha lot of inspiration. 200 participants worked together and also worked outside the congress venue (which was Institut Pasteur) to accomplish a new way of thinking and acting when it comes to, for example, Patient Centered Research.

After the thursday evening session at the UNESCO Building (one of the outcomes might be an UNESCO University), Ilona Schelle, Piarella Peralta, Gaston Remmers and Peter Kapitein took the advantage of the beautiful weather and had dinner outside. The next day all the participants had the honor to end their day at Hotel de Ville and were the guest of the deputy mayor.
