EVER 2022 Congress

Our group took part in the 23rd European Association for Vision and Eye Research (EVER) Congress, which was held between 13.-15.10.2022 in the sunny (and hot) Valencia, Spain. The congress was back at full(ish) steam after a couple years of Covid-related special arrangements. We had the pleasure of showcasing multiple different research posters as well as a rapid-fire presentation, while our Prof. Kaarniranta was kept busy by his duties as an ex-EVER president. We were glad to meet and talk with many familiar and new faces.

This photo shows a view of Valencia's centre of arts and sciences. The architecture is impressive, with the main building looking dome-like, with an upwards-arch structure on the outside suspended by a multitude of cables, which makes the arch look harp-like.
There was time for sightseeing and visiting local attractions too: one of the places our group visited was the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències.
