Due to the continuous COVID-19 restrictions, the NeEDS consortium had moved its Mid-Term Meeting online, originally planned to take place at USE (BEN2) in Sevilla, July 2020.
Over the course of two days, work package leaders as well as previous secondees have presented their progress, reflected on challenges, and discussed future activities together with the rest of the team. The current unpredictability of travel opportunities and face-to-face exchange requires a fresh and innovative view on how to implement a project such as NeEDS. Members have shown great efforts by holding events online and keeping collaborations afloat over distance.
Long-term solutions regarding the responsible organisation of secondments in COVID-19 times is now the next big challenge on the agenda.
