Continuing education

“Learning is like rowing against the tide.

If you stop, you will drift backwards.”

Laozi

For that reason, we take care to be always up-to-date and to study further ongoing. However, we gladly share our knowledge in the form of publications and seminars with you.

Seminars and conferences
