March 16, 2020 

Written by CEM  

The kick-off meeting of the TrainN-SafeMDs had to originally take place at AIT, Austria on March 16.  Due to the COVID-19 situation in the region and restrictions to travel abroad, a teleconference was organised instead. The consortium discussed the scientific and logistic plans and activities related to the dissemination of the project. It was agreed, that web-site will be launched in April to promote the project objectives as well as outputs. The teams will cross-train each other in the established methods and models in the time-frame of 06/2020-12/2020 and it is foreseen that despite current travel restrictions, there will be no delays in fulfilling the project objectives. Data generated in this project in the following year will build a basis for a larger validation project in the area of the medical devices’ safety assessment in the upcoming years.
