IF is organising its second members' workshop in the framework of our European project "S.H.A.P.E. OUR FUTURE". Building on the success of our first workshop in Bratislava that took place in May 2014, we decided to expand the participation of all European IF members in the second workshop to maximise the learning and exchange process. IF Board meeting will be held in parallel, and after our workshop, we will all have the opportunity to participate in the international conference organised by Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI), our Irish member who will be our host in Dublin.
