Last week VES4US held the first annual meeting of partners in Mainz at the headquarters of MPIP. With more than 25 participants from all groups, the meeting took place from the 22nd to the 24th July. In addition, the meeting featured the online participation of the project PO, who offered their perspectives, comments and next steps for the next year of the project.

During the meeting, very promising results were introduced by both the WP leaders and the young scientists involved in the project. Later, the partners prepared themselves for the review meeting in Brussels, next October.

The meeting finished with a lab tour in which all the partners participated and could see first-hand the premises of the kind host for this 1st annual meeting, Prof. Katharina Landfester and Dr. Svenja Morsbach from Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research at Mainz, Germany.
