Initially scheduled to be held in Kazan, Russian Federation in June, the 2020 FVLA was switched to an online format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to ensure the high level of the educational courses as well asthe Student Ambassadors Programme, this year’s curriculum was divided into two parts: introductory sessions in June and more detailed sessions in September sessions.
