6th NEWBITS project meeting in Stuttgart

The NEWBITS consortium held its last project meeting in Stuttgart, organised by our German partner Steinbeis 2i GmbH on 12th and 13th of December.

The meeting began with a brief presentation from the director of our hosting partner Dr.-Ing. Petra Püchner and continued with an update of progress on final work in WP5, WP6 and WP7. These three work packages will be finalized in March 2019.

Therefore, the focus of the meeting was placed on the ongoing final work in T5.2 and T5.3, T6.3 and a few tasks of WP7, for which partners held thorough discussions of current issues and solutions to those issues. On the second day, the focus was on progressing the current exploitation plan. Also, TTS Italy presented a second version of the liaison plan, pointed-out the difficulties in their communication with the partners from outside Europe.

Special attention was given to the status of the NNP and its registered users (WP6); the business case guidelines and policy recommendations (WP5); as well as the organisation of the final conference in March 2019, and planning of the last webinar and its target groups.
