Meeting agenda (in Finnish)
Dear FOTY members,
Join us in the 6th floor coffee room on Wednesday the 16th at 16 o’clock for some relaxed pre-christmas drinks! FOTY will bring wine (We still have quite some left after the 60th anniversary party, and we need to get rid of it!), soft drinks and some snacks. Just bring yourself and your best holiday spirit!
The 6th floor door will probably be locked, so ring the doorbell and we’ll let you in.
As a result of the logo competition organized at FOTY’s 60-year celebration, FOTY now has a brand new logo designed by PhD student Feng Deng. The logo is modern and fresh but still simple, of course with a pharmaceutical twist – check out below how it looks!
Year 2015 is a special celebration year for FOTY, since the association was founded 60 years ago! FOTY will give out a 60-year anniversary booklet and organize a cocktail party celebration for members and faculty on 25 September 2015.
Invitations will be sent to all FOTY members in August together with the Anniversary booklet. Make sure to mark your calendars already to not miss a great opportunity to meet colleagues and celebrate 60 years of collaboration within the Association!
Registration by 10 September
