We really enjoyed meeting our project partners and distinguished guests last week in Mosonmagyaróvár, who joined the so-called transnational partnership meeting (TPM). This was the second opportunity (due to the pandemic in the first phase of the project) to physically organize such kind of event, and this time we also had a choice to continue our stay with dissemination and knowledge exchange at the i2connect mid-term conference/poster session. Thanks to all the discussions, the tasks and possibilities of the final phase of the project became much clearer for all participants.
