The WorldSoils project kicked-off in 2020, during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the team has always worked remotely, ensuring that all project milestones were achieved as agreed. The consortium team has finally had the opportunity to meet in person last 26th of May 2022, for Project Meeting #06, during the ESA Living Planet Symposium held in Bonn. All members agreed about the relevance of face-to-face meetings to build on relationships and foster the collaboration and understanding of the issues that arise throughout the project life cycle.
It was a pleasure to finally be able to share a few hours after a bunch of video conferences in Teams.
We hope to meet again in Madrid, during the Acceptance Review meeting planned at the end of Phase 2.
