The second project meeting of the MOBI-TWIN project
14 December, 2023 @ 9:00 am – 15 December, 2023 @ 2:30 pm
We are thrilled to announce that the MOBI-TWIN project’s first plenary meeting was held on the 14th and 15th of December in Groningen, The Netherlands, and was hosted successfully by the University of Groningen. After six months since the project’s kick-off meeting, the consortium partners had the opportunity to get together again and convey their ideas efficiently and clearly.
All project consortium participants attended this hybrid event, some online, while others in person, and discussed their work, achievements, and goals for the next months. Following an introductory welcome from the MOBI-TWIN project coordinator White Research, each partner provided an in-depth presentation on their progress, offering an update on completed and current work on various aspects of the project. Work package leaders also provided an update on the status of tasks and deliverables, and addressed the challenges they faced with a spirit of collaboration. The meeting also provided an opportunity to network and strengthen relationships within the consortium.
The first day of the plenary meeting was dedicated to the pilots and the technologies employed in their implementation as well as the dataset obtained. Partners brainstormed on the use of the Agent based modelling in the pilots and also were requested to provide input on the EU policies regarding the twin transition. The day was wrapped with the Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) workshop organised by the European Science Foundation, analysing the importance of the difference between the terms sex and gender.
On the second day of the event, the project coordinator made an introduction for the succeeding presentations related to the dissemination and exploitation of the MOBI-TWIN project. The dissemination items that have been delivered as well as the actions carried out the previous six months were presented and partners were encouraged to communicate their efforts made to enhance and raise awareness of the project. The meeting ended with a presentation from the leader of the PREMIUM_EU project, a sister project of the MOBI-TWIN project, where a fruitful discussion on the policies of both projects was held.
These types of events are critical for building team spirit among partners, as well as for offering opportunities for lasting connections and professional collaboration. For this reason, we would like to give a big thank you to all of the participants, especially the University of Groningen and the White Research, for organising this excellent meeting.
