First ParaFishControl Annual Meeting, Sep 2016, Copenhagen, Denmark

On 12-15 September 2016, the ParaFishControl consortium met at its first Annual Meeting in the beautiful city of Copenhagen, Denmark to discuss their innovative ideas and progress during the first 1.5 years as part of the ParaFishControl project. Over 70 researchers from 13 European countries and Canada got together.

The meeting started with a session of the Executive Committee (Work Package leaders), followed the next morning by the official welcome of meeting participants by project coordinator Dr. Ariadna Sitjà-Bobadilla (CSIC) “This has been an exciting year for ParaFishControl! We have already made significant progress in achieving the aims of various tasks in the project.” 

During the following sessions, every work package reported on their activities and achievements and opened the floor for further discussions with all partners. Additionally, small working groups enabled targeted discussions within specific topics. 

The Annual Meeting was organised by Prof. Kurt Buchmann and his team from the University of Copenhagen, who kept everyone happy and well caffeinated.
