After over a year working together, we had our first in-person consortium meeting of ATARCA! On June 8 2022, 19 members from all the organizations participating in the project got together in Barcelona for three days where we were able to have very productive meetings about different aspects of the project. For many, thsi was the first time we met in person, and we were able to get to know each other better and spend time together.
It was a very good opportunity to have a retrospective session of our first year of the project, to identify the best practices and the results we have achieved until now, plan the next months of the project and analyze what could be improved, taking into account the constructive feedback received by the EC at the end of May during the mid-review.
We had the chance to present the Green Shops pilot in Barcelona and the Streamr use case to all the attendees. Being together was really helpful to discuss key points that can help to make the most of the experiments. We also organized a communication workshop to think about how to reach a broader audience that can be interested in the project and talked about the possibilities of giving continuity to the work that we are doing after the end of the project.
Hopefully we will be able to meet again soon!
