The European Commission invited the six H2020-HCA cluster projects – and among them the ESPACE team – to Brussels shortly after the project start on January 1, 2020.
On January 13-14, scientific coordinators, project managers and data managers of the cluster came together in Brussels to meet with EC representatives, coordinate on joint activities, and discuss the next steps for the projects.
All six cluster projects are dedicated to working together to increase the impact of the projects over the next two years. The group formed networks of project managers and data managers, who already agreed on several activities to enhance their cooperation. Besides cluster-wide centrally organized communication, regular cluster project meetings will take place to foster information exchange and align project acitivites. Moreover, LINQ management from the ESPACE team volunteered to coordinate the set up of a joint introductory webpage for the cluster in close collaboration with the HCA Executive Office.
