Later, the session continued with SRU’s and University of Southernn Denmak’s (SDU) work progress. SRU presented their developments in the chemistry of the formose and how it can be further implemented. Then, SDU showcased the model creation and complex simulations like climate change and metabolic pathways, to name a few. After the coffee break, Dr. Loertscher from IBM Research Europe — Zurich, presented IBM`s work status and technical challenges. The consortium finished the first day brainstorming on the potential innovations, bearing in mind the EC requirements and different supporting opportunities such as the IP Scan and HSbooster.

The second day of the meeting started with the presentation on the project outreach delivered by accelCH, which included CORENET communication, dissemination, and exploitation activities. During the first presentation, Ms. Frances and Ms. Dovha informed all partners about the communication materials available for the project, such as flyers, brochures, and factsheets. Besides, they explained to the partners the acknowledgment and the EU rules that must be taken into consideration for the upcoming publications within the project. Up next, Mr. Hönger provided an overview of the latest updates on innovation management. The session was finished with a wide wrap-up on data management and a work plan for the next months.
