The General Assembly of SINCERE project took place in Brussels on 22-24 October and the meeting was also used as an opportunity to organise a Gender balance training as foreseen in the Grant Agreement. All partners were represented including the ones of Africa and Latin America. A general agreement on streamlining some of the tasks towards ECCA2021 was given and discussions started within the project and different Work Packages (WPs)/tasks to think about the possibilities and consequences the organisation of ECCA2021 will have. The overall feedback was positive. The individual WPs/tasks have created a document outlining the expected changes in their respective activities with regard to goals/deliverables/milestones.The practicalities for an amendment of the project will be foreseen by the new coordinator Mathieu Lanin (BELSPO) together with the European Commission and the executing agency EASME. The workshop received a very positive feedback from the participants.
