The first annual meeting will take place June 21 – 23 in Lisbon and will review and evaluate the progression of the project. ESRs will present their work by sharing results and technologies of the first year and will have opportunities to exchange experiences, knowledge, and plans with other ESRs, co-supervisors and partners. International guest lectures will be organized to broaden the ESRs’ perspectives. The meeting will be open to interested public as well as companies. In addition, a workshop on research and quality management will be provided to all ESRs by our partners Ludger and PCDI.
