FEMP Reunion's


FEMP Reunion 2023

The FEMP reunion in 2023 was a great success.
With close to 90 attendees, this year’s FEMP Reunion was held at the Aalto University in Espoo along with a cultural visit to Estonia by ferry on Saturday.
It was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones as well as hear about some of the exciting projects and developments underway in the industry.
We want to thank our sponsors who make everything we do possible; it was great to so many companies participating this year. ​
