The UPSURGE Consortium meeting took place in Maribor, Slovenia on 28-29.03.2023. That was a first day of our discussions on the project progress. We overviewed all of the work-packages, checked achievements and results. The two-day program included both presentations and workshops. A lot of work is still ahead of us and so many ambitious goals to be achieved in the next months of the Upsurge-project. So follow us and stay up to date!
