A Young Researchers Networking Event will take place on Wednesday evening. PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and young researchers are invited to share experiences and exchange contact data in a relaxed ambience.

Senior researchers and companies representatives will be invited to publicize their collaboration or job opportunities and to informally meet potential candidates.

Real Club Astur de Regatas (Royal Astur Yatch Club)

El Tendayu

Cider, which the Romans discovered when they arrived here two thousand years ago, is more than just a drink: it is a way of getting fun, of socialising, and of sharing. Because cider is never drunk alone in Asturias.

A espicha is an informal buffet-style banquet held in a cider mill, usually organized to celebrate a family event or friends gathering, or … ICFPM Welcome Party. Technically speaking, the word espicha refers to the action of opening a barrel for the first time. Food is traditional and eaten up while standing and moving from group to group.

Royal Astur Yatch Club

This historical club has the restaurant and terrace with the best views on Gijón East Bay and the beach of San Lorenzo.
