Back-2-back events

The ARTEMIS-IA Brokerage was preceded with the Workshop of Interoperability Coordination Forum, an activity of the ARTEMIS-IA Working Group Standardisation in the morning of February 6, for which 60 people registered. 

As in 2017, also this year EPoSS organized its Proposers’ Day back-to-back on February 8 at the same venue, making it easy to attend both events.
