Conference 2015

EPSA’s fifth annual conference took place from June 25 to June 27 in one of Vienna’s UNESCO world heritage sites: Schloss Schönbrunn. Vienna is a great place for a conference: the best coffee houses in the world, vineyards and beer gardens never far away, the culinaric home of the Sachertorte, the Schnitzel, and the Tafelspitz, Vienna also claims itself for having invented classical music. Schloss Schönbrunn is one of the most important Baroque residences in Europe. The original plan intended it to exceed Versailles in size, but the Habsburg monarchy failed to provide the financial means to conclude the buildings as planned. Equally important are the gardens of Schönbrunn which span over roughly three square kilometres and today include a public swimming pool and a zoo. The conference took place in the Apothecary’s Wing.
