From 14 to 16 may, 2024, the DATAMITE Consortium met in Poznan to host its first plenary meeting of 2024. The meeting was three days divided into a first day of CodeCamp with the developers involved in the project, followed by two days of presentations of each work package with the entire consortium.

The first day was dedicated to a CodeCamp with the members in charge of developing the project’s code. The team was divided into three groups to be able to talk in person about the status of the project and work together on the obstacles they are encountering. These three groups were ‘Data governance and Data discovery’, ‘Data Quality’, and ‘Gaia-X Onboarding’.

For the second and third day of the plenary meeting, the remaining partners who were not involved in the codecamp joined in. The 15th and 16th of May were dedicated to presentations of each work package and different internal workshops. These activities aimed to keep the whole consortium informed about the status of each DATAMITE element, while also fostering exchange of ideas among partners to gather valuable inputs for upcoming tasks.

Among some of the most important topics discussed were the next deliverables that the project has to present and the mid-term project review meeting that will take place during September.

In addition to the three intense days of work, the DATAMITE consortium enjoyed a guided tour of the beautiful city of Poznan followed by a local dinner and a visit to the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) facilities, thanks to the colleagues of PSNC, who hosted this plenary meeting.
