EUJO-LIMMS Information Day - December 12,2012  Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (Switzerland)

On December 12, 2012, EUJO-LIMMS organized its first Information Day at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, in Switzerland. EUJO-LIMMS project results as well as emerging scientific challenges and future collaborations were presented. In view of the opening of EUJO-LIMMS to a 4th partner in 2013/2014, an active involvement from other EU research institutions was encouraged in all sessions. 90 research stakeholders participated in the event.
