Over 50 participants from 27 organizations in the MegaM@Rt2 project gathered in Helsinki in March for three intense working days. The meeting was hosted by the Finnish partners in the MegaM@Rt2 project in the beautiful Hotel Presidentti in the center of Helsinki. The meeting included a wide range of activities.
Day 1 was focused on strengthening cooperation between industrial case study providers and the tool and method provides in the project. This was organized in the form of Hackathons in which different tool and method providers solved concrete challenges raised case study providers. The event was considered a success by all participants.
After an intense working day project participants gathered at the AINO restaurant in the center of Helsinki to experience authentic Finnish cuisine.
In Day 2, the leader of each work package leader provided an overview of the completed activities in each work package and the plan for the next working period. The conclusion was that the project progresses according to plan and everyone is fully committed. A working dinner has been organized at the Presidentti Hotel at the end of a long working day.
Day 3 was allocated to lively discussions and brainstorming about the future activities and collaborations in the project, including dissemination in well-established academic conferences. Also interactions with other European projects have been discussed and presented.
All in all, the 3rd Megam@Rt2 plenary was a success not only because it brought together all the partners in the project, but also because it opened the door to new collaborations between the partners of the project and new research directions.
See you all again in the next plenary meeting in France!
