Season's Greetings and a Sustainable New Year is the video message of the LifeWatch ERIC newsletter Special Issue, wishing all our community, stakeholders and supporters, a Happy Holiday Season. The news period covered from November to December 2019, however, was certainly not without significant developments.
The annual General Assembly in December reviewed LIfeWatch ERIC activities in 2019 and approved strategic plans for 2020. Central to the deliberations was the endorsement of the prototype LifeWatch ERIC Platform, based on the NIS Virtual Research Environment developed at Second Dahlem-type Workshop. Successful outcomes of the EU-CELAC Working Party and the LifeWatch Belgium Users and Stakeholders Meeting complete the news updates.
New Year events kick off in Venice on 20-24 January with the EUROLAG Conference on Coastal Lagoons, closely followed by the Maritime Industtry Workshop on 23 January in Ostend.
