The UNICA General Assembly 2015 was hosted by Université libre de Bruxelles and Vrije Universiteit Brussel, 15-17 October 2015. We extend our thanks to both Universities for having hosted the event which is of triple importance, as it also featured the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Network and the UNICA President & Steering Committee elections.
