EHA2014 was a great success. We had many interesting lectures (movies will be uploaded soon), interesting discussions on fundraising and new projects. 


There were participants from Belgium, France, the Nederlands, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, and United States. 


Below are some pictures I took, more professional pictures will come soon.

Thanks for the pictures Sven. Will be interesting to see some of the videos. I would like to hear about the fundraising discussion - that would be good information for all of us.
