The DECODE Progress Monitoring meeting was held online on September 26th 2023. The purpose of this meeting was twofold. On one side, all ESRs had the chance to present their advancement in their research work and to have productive conversations with their fellow students. On the other hand, the coordinator of the project encouraged everyone to state their problems in terms of infrastructure, data availability and cooperation with their colleagues. The meeting lasted approximately 2 hours, giving the students the necessary time to present their scientific work, their issues or lack thereof and interact with each other.
On the whole, it was a great and highly beneficial meeting, and the input will be assessed and evaluated by the management team of the DECODE project.
