“We had the opportunity to engage with numerous fascinating and highly knowledgeable researchers and professors. Our interactions extended to doctoral students, particularly those involved in deciduous tree research. Meaningful discussions about potential collaborations took place with researchers from Korea, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, and the Scandinavian region. The hospitality was outstanding, and the conference concluded with an electrifying party. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, found it beneficial, and highly recommend the conferences facilitated by the professors from Sopron to all our colleagues.”
