Saturday 9th June

08:00 – 08:55 Breakfast session: What can EASE do for you?
This session will provide an opportunity to hear what EASE has been doing, and to make requests for what EASE should be doing next. Led by Ana Marusic and Pippa Smart, there will be an opportunity to meet Council members and to discuss what direction EASE should be taking – do you think we should focus on creating guidelines, training, advising or advocating, collaborating, or are there other needs that EASE should be addressing? Make your voice heard!
The session will be informal, with open discussions and we welcome all members and non-members – especially anyone new to EASE.
