Lunch options

The canteen at 5th floor of the Rectorate building can host up to 100 people. Prices are low and the food is good, however the service is not very fast.

Inside the conference area there are several small bars and automatic machines which you can use to have a fast and/or working lunch. We recommend this option if you want to participate to the Live demonstrations.
