Join the EOSC-Nordic Second General Assembly Meeting! All interested stakeholders are welcome.

On the 29th and the 30th of September, we will be hosting the EOSC-Nordic Second General Assembly in Copenhagen, Denmark. We look very much forward to this first physical event in a long time!

The first day of the Second General Assembly is dedicated to work package meetings for the project participants. The location will be at the Technical University of Denmark. In the afternoon everyone is also invited to a social event in Copenhagen and a dinner afterward.

The second day will be at the National Aquarium Denmark, where all interested stakeholders may learn about the project's progress and future steps. Due to the current uncertainties with Covid-19, we are also offering virtual participation for the Second General Assembly meeting on Thursday the 30th of September.
