It is a great honor to be part of this collaboration and be enriched by the contributions of all our members and the other actors we cooperate within the Mediterranean region.The celebration of this anniversary will be carried out all year long, within the activities and events we organise and in which we can count on the participation and the contribution of all UNIMED Members and friends.
