Congress President welcome

Dear colleagues and friends,

Our Congress president Dzintars Ozolins now is in our memories, but I am determined to continue what he started.

I am honored and with great pleasure I welcome you to already the XV BALM congress, which as per tradition will be held this time in Riga, the capital Latvia.

The National Library of Latvia is chosen as the Venue for the congress – new, modern building in the very heart of Riga with a beatiful view to Latvias River of Destiny – Daugava and the beautiful Rigas Old Town across the river. The mission of the National Library of Latvia (which we also call the Catsle of light) is to promote the spiritual and intellectual development. It has been chosen as the venue for many scientific congresses, exhibitions, art and music events from it’s opening.

We plan to have diverse and saturated work days, but I hope that gaining new informationd and meeting colleagues and friends, disconnecting from the daily routine  and the exhibition attendance will allow us to look at processes in our daily work from a different perspective, it will develop our proffessional growth and strenghthen the Baltic countries laboratory specialists cooperation.

In case of questions or concerns please feel free to contact us!

With warmest regards,  
Dagne Grāvele
Congress President
President of Latvian Society of Laboratory Medicine

Under the Auspices of:
