The 7th Congress of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) took place in Valencia (Spain) from the 9th to the 13th July 2017.

It was an event that List_MAPS couldn’t miss! Right after the Summer school, ESRs and supervisors went to Spain to attend several talks, meet international microbiologists and be updated on the state of the art on antimicrobial resistance and infections, food microbiology, sustainability, etc.

In Dijon, Angela and Catarina talked three times during 8 minutes to a group of 4 people about their project and they tried to be understandable by a no-scientific public.
