On the 30 th and 31 st of January 2019 the SERENA partners met in Villach, Austria at IFAT premises for the General Assembly and the technical meeting.

On January 30 and 31, 2019 the SERENA consortium met again for a general assembly and a technical meeting. This time, Infineon hosted the meeting. The partners met on January 30 for lunch. The informal atmosphere was a great way to ease into the formal part of the gathering which started with welcome speeches from the coordinator, the host and the technical leader. Partners then watched a presentation about the technical status of the project where a summary of the main achievements and recommendations of the first review meeting were presented. After that, the work package leaders held presentations about their individual work packages covering the status of ongoing work and the planning of next steps. Afterwards, partners actively discussed various phases of the project, each contributing their own expertise. Later in the afternoon, partners enjoyed a fine dinner together. A relaxed atmosphere marked the perfect evening to a prosperous day. The next day, the consortium met again to continue with the technical meeting. By midday, the consortium finished the remainder of presentations and work package technical discussions. The partners made their way back home with new action as well as a sense of common achievement in striving to reach the objectives of the SERENA project.
