We would like to invite all of our companions from 35 years. However, addresses and names change over time and we can no longer reach a lot of our former colleagues. Maybe you are still in touch with former colleagues? We would be delighted if you could draw their attention to our event and tell them that they are welcome to send us their updated contact details via email at 35jahre@dont-want-spam.fzi.de.

The registration for the event ist open until February 5, 2020.

See you in February 2020!

We thank the FZI Friends‘ Association for its support!
