NextGEM held its 4th plenary meeting on 10-11 of October 2023, at the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) premises in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.
The meeting brought together over 30 attendees, representing a consortium of 20 European partner organizations. The participants convened both in person and via teleconference, showcasing the project’s commitment to collaboration and inclusivity.
The primary aim of this gathering was to provide a comprehensive overview of the project’s progress up to the present moment. Moreover, the meeting delved into specialized discussions, with a sharp focus on the technical intricacies of the project. After two days of robust engagement, the participants charted out the next steps, solidifying the coordination efforts for internal communication and research planning.
One of the standout features of this meeting was the open forum it provided. All attendees had the invaluable opportunity to share their insights, opinions, and innovative ideas. This collective brainstorming session laid the foundation for a shared vision and a unified path forward, aligning efforts toward the project’s ambitious objectives.
Looking ahead, the next rendezvous for the NextGEM project is set for Spring 2024 in the vibrant city of Brussels, Belgium. The esteemed Sciensano Belgian institute for health will graciously host this pivotal gathering, marking yet another milestone in the project’s journey towards innovation and excellence.
