The Kickoff

The first meeting of the project’s AB was held on February 10th, as part of WP1 activities led by Rupprecht Consult. It consisted in pitch presentations, guided Q&A sessions and interactive activities.

During the meeting, the project team provided an overview of the TANGENT’s objectives, activities, and challenges. The AB had the opportunity to share their perspectives, provide feedback and ask questions, leading to discussions on how to ensure the usability of the project tools and results in the long run.

This first online meeting was a great opportunity for the team and AB to get to know each other. We are confident the board will foster robust partnerships, driving the project’s success and contributing to the dissemination of the project’s results.
