How did I find out about EFI and why did we join:
We were introduced to EFI thanks to Professor Davide Pettenella of University of Padova (UNIPD). EFI’s mission and vision is very aligned with ours, we know many of the members and have taken part in many projects and research activities together over the years.

Have we attended any EFI events: We have attended a number of EFI events, annual conferences, other policy and research online and offline events, trainings, webinars etc.

What other member benefit is useful: We are recent members and would like to understand this better, from a member perspective – e.g, research and consultancy opportunities, collaboration in new projects etc.
