8th Plenary Meeting in Pula

On 5th and 6th July 2022, the AMANDA Consortium held its 8th plenary meeting, which was also the last plenary meeting, given that the project officially lasts until the end of September. This time, after more than two years of remote collaboration due to COVID-19 restrictions, the plenary meeting was organized as a hybrid event, and it took place in Pula (Croatia), hosted by PENTA d.o.o., but also online. 

During the meeting, all partners presented the work performed during the past months, reflected on their progress across all WPs and scheduled the next steps toward the project's final phase. A lively discussion on validation and evaluation of the Autonomous Smart Sensing Card (ASSC) was held, and the exploitation plan update for commercial exploitation beyond the project lifetime was also agreed upon.

On the first day, right after the plenary meeting, Penta organized a walking tour around the city, including large cranes looming over the massive shipyard and Roman ruins scattered throughout Old Town Pula.

On the second day, attendees had the opportunity to enjoy Istria's beautiful nature and explore National park Brijuni, the unspoiled beauty of the amazing Adriatic islands.
