Today we had the iimena annual scientific project meeting, again online due to the COVID-19 situation, with all the partners from the IIMENA project funded by a Challenge Grant of the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The meeting allowed the partners to present their latest update on the results from the project as well as the next steps and plans for the future. We hope the next meeting towards the end of the year 2021 will be face-to-face.
