On Tuesday, June 16th, the Reincarnate team held the first online meeting to welcome the Advisory Board members. AUSTRALO, the partner responsible for the project’s communication, dissemination, and exploitation work package, organised the meeting. This gathering was the first interaction of the board members with our project.

The Advisory Board of Reincarnate comprises seven experts from different fields: science, engineering, economy, business and innovation. The Reincarnate team has nominated them to assist in the project’s technical gatherings, workshops and communication activities. The board will collaborate voluntarily to support Reincarnate’s innovations and research from an external perspective, providing valuable expertise to enhance our project.
