The LRE Conference is an important element of the LRE Forum, with which we hope to inform, inspire and connect. It reunites all of the LRE’s members, network, stakeholders, and the general public. We aim to give an update on the LRE’s activities, to inform participants about upcoming projects, and to provide interesting in-depth presentations and panel discussions.
