You know the glow at the end of a conference: you're ready to collaborate, you made new research connections and friends, you're full of goodwill and ideas. Exhausted but energized, we'll keep the magic going a bit longer with the Pixiedust Tea. It is a great way to unwind after your conference experience, make sure you have those new contacts in your phone, and chat in convivial surroundings over a light meal and the perfect cup of tea.
There is no cost, but please register to help us with our planning.
