After all these months of lock-down and virtual meetings the partners have eventually met for the first time in Malaga-Vélez in Spain in early September. It was a great pleasure to finally see each other live for the first time … and it was also the first meeting ever for all of us after all the months of virtual meetings. Unfortunately, not all partners could be there as there are still some hurdles. But it became clear how much more efficient – despite all the routine in the virtual meetings – it is to work in presence. And the pleasure of exchanging ideas outside of work and exploring the partner’s environment showed everyone again the added value of the meetings. We hope that we will be able to meet all partners next year in Sofia!
