EuroFM looks back at a successful Members Meeting hosted by the Institute of Facility Management (IFM) as part of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW).
IFM also organized this year’s EuroFM Winter-school. The Winter-school is the annual EuroFM education program where FM students from all over the world follow an intensive learning program for a week. This year’s theme for the Winter-school was titled: User-Centric Management of Learning Environments. At the end of the week the students presented their work from the past week within the frame of this subject. For the program the students visited the central library of the Zurich University and the ZHAW library in Winterthur. On Friday March 8th both the FM students and the EuroFM members were welcome at IFM-Day in Wädenswil. Topic for the IFM day this year was ‘Management in Times of demanded Customer Happiness’. Speakers for the day, amongst whom Laura Rangognini - Apleona HSG AG, Michael Strebel - Wincasa AG, Glenn Oberholzer - Stimmt AG, and Bruno Lochbrunner - SBB AG, were introduced by Institute leader Prof. Dr.-Ing. Antje Junghans.
On Wednesday March 6th the attendees at the EuroFM Members Meeting were also welcomed by Antje for the ‘Welcome Apéro’ in Zurich-City. On Thursday March 7th for the Network Dinner Event at Au Castle the EuroFM members also had the pleasure of meeting the delegates present for the GEFMA Professors Conference.

Earlier this day during the EuroFM General Members meeting the developments within the EuroFM network were discussed.
