Welcome to Lisbon!

Lisbon: a city plenty of historical stories to tell, where the sun shines most days of the year and the temperature seldom drops below 15 Celsius. A friendly and safe city all day round, where cultures melt, cuisine is fantastic, and academic environment, hi-tech innovation and ancient history blend into a challenging experience!

ISLSSL and APODIT will be honoured to welcome you to ‘Lisbon 2020’, our XIII European Regional Congress, where topics and speakers have been carefully chosen to provide you with an unforgettable happening, looking at our common past, bearing in mind our present situation and anticipating trends of work and employment in the defying digital era we are already experiencing.

You are all warmly welcome!

Maria do Rosário Palma-Ramalho
