Dr. Meyer said, “We are very happy that the research results of last year’s two winners were presented at the perfectly organized IULTCS Congress in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, last November. Although the number of physical participants was limited due to the pandemic, we had the opportunity to participate in the remote presentations given by Dr Caroline Agustini (Brazil) and Dr Nilay Ork (Turkey). Also this year we have received some new proposals and two of them have been selected. IULTCS is looking forward to seeing the results of Fitsum and Louret’s research and the projects we are supporting and wishes them every success as they help broaden our knowledge of the sector ”.
