Sustainability at FIME

FIME Sustainability

We know how increasingly important sustainability has become

Organizing FIME gives us lots of opportunities to improve our environmental, social and economic impact in our region.  We want to make our event more responsible and play a role in helping the market improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they need to help solve the big challenges in the healthcare sector.

Our three aims
