Networking is a major benefit of the RRFM conference,
because the research reactor community is small and highly specialised.
The social events help connect the conference delegates and are
included in the registration fee.
The Welcome Reception will take place on a cruise
ship, taking a trip down the Rhône from the Congress Center
to the confluent and back up the Saone along the Renaissance Quarters
of Old Lyon. Seen from the water, the city of Lyon, with its exceptional
cultural and architectural heritage, shows its best profile. Meet
your fellow delegates and discover monuments, bridges and river
activities of Lyon from an original angle!
The welcome reception will take place on Sunday 11 March at 20.30.
A pre-registration desk will be opened from 19.30 on.
Welcome Reception is graciously
sponsored by CEA and NAC International
