27 September 2021: Kick-Off Meeting
(Meeting material)
On 27 September 2021 we met for our official Kick-Off meeting. Not in person, unfortunately, but with subgroup discussions and an interactive poster session we were still able to get in contact with each other.
After a short introduction and the approval of formals, we talked about a common data management ground. Each project presented a poster in the following session and in the late afternoon the three Research Areas A/B/C met in order to plan collaborations within the first year. After that we talked about how the individual projects come together in the central activities: synthesis of observational data and synthesis of modelling.
A total of about sixty people joined the meeting, among them about twenty new PhD students and Postdocs.
