ECHO’s 1st YEAR GENERAL ASSEMBLY

This morning ECHO partners gathered in their living rooms for our 1st year General Assembly, replacing the original Rome face-to-face event. The meeting was opened by special guest, our Project Officer, Monica Lanzenberger from EC, followed by keynotes of Wim Mees Project Coordinator, and Matteo Merialdo PIM of ECHO.
82 team members are present at the assembly, representing all 30 partners of ECHO.
This GA offers a complete overview of the project and it is quite important to ensure that all partners are aware of the main results/successes/challenges of the project in its first 15 months.
The main messages included: We are on track, we are successfully managing the actual, difficult situation, with success. First, concrete results from all WPs are already published and we started the Demonstration Cases of the ECHO Early Warning system well ahead of schedule. But more importantly, we are acting as a collaborative Network and we know can definitely help the EU reaching its digital strategic autonomy!
The next steps will be to enlarge the network with new partners/participants and keep working hard on our research topics and our tools and systems!
