Participation in the Researchers Night

Lead: adelphi SYSTEM-RISK consortium members participated in the European Researchers Night / national Nights of Sciences with presentations and/or SYSTEM-RISK booths (months 24, 36) + GIFT Workshops (months 29, 41).

Website launched

Lead: adelphi Website launched: The SYSTEM-RISK ETN website will continuously report about the project’s objectives, activities and results. It will also be used for internal communication and for jointly recruiting ESRs.
