Thank you, all.
I agree feedback has been good and I am sure there will be a debrief with EAACI once formal feedback is in from participants and formal numbers assessed. The factors which could be improved on would be discussed there, I am sure, and fed back with learning points for next time.
Special mention for:
- the fantastic speakers’ dinner : venue, menu and set-up (mainly Spiros?)
- excellent liaison, efficiency even after usual office hours and a can-do, positive attitude from our main contact person, Maria Milonaki
- last-minute help with formatting quiz on Fri and photo collage at closing ceremony from Iannis and esp Ellie Tsatsou.

“Throughout this long period of time, I experienced all staff members of ERASMUS to be entire-ly competent, professional and cooperative. The team were dedicated to the aims and goals of the Col-loquium and strived for maximum efficiency and output with great effect. Their solution-oriented ap-proach and their immediate grasp of the specific needs for large academic meetings can be attested to the fact that any arising challenges were overcome quickly and to our complete satisfaction. Our work-ing relationship, whilst intense, was always entirely harmonious and was characterized by outstanding cooperation.
