The 5th General Assembly (GA) meeting, held online on May 13th brought together all the partners for a comprehensive discussion on the advancement of the powerful chemical reservoir computer systems.

The meeting began with a welcome presentation from Prof. Andrés de la Escosura from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). This was followed by a discussion on UAM’s work progress in the synthesis of biohybrid systems and complex reaction networks, the challenges encountered, and future steps for the project. The consortium then heard from Dr. Alberto Valdez representing the National Research Council of Spain (CSIC), who provided an update on the use of novel computational methodologies to analyse chemical reaction networks, the challenges associated with type analysis and the way forward. Shortly after, Prof. Wilhelm Huck from Radboud Universiteit (SRU), shared an update of their results on the use of a reservoir computer to classify and understand the changes in system dynamics of chemical reaction networks.

The second half of the meeting began with Prof. Daniel Merkle and Dr. Mehmet Aziz Yirik from the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). Their presentation covered key topics such as the modelling framework and theoretical prediction of chemical reactions in a network. Following this, Dr. Katja-Sophia Csizi and Dr. Emanuel Loertscher from IBM Research Europe – Zurich (IBM) provided valuable insights into reactor technology with AI modelling to better understand the dynamic complexity of chemical networks.

After, Ms. Miriam Frances from accelopment Schweiz AG (accelCH) presented the highlights of the project’s communication and dissemination activities, with updates on the recently implemented first CORENET Webinar and new outreach activities scheduled for the upcoming months, with a focus on the Postdocs and PhD students. The project status and the upcoming innovation and exploitation activities were then presented by Ms. Andreia Cruz from accelCH, including the dashboard, periodic report status, submitted deliverables and next steps.

The assembly wrapped up with an open and productive discussion led by Prof. de la Escosura, encouraging all partners to share their ideas on project improvements, not only from the science perspective but also in terms of further exploitation and innovation strategies and actions.
