The first meeting of the Scientific Advisory Board was held in November at the TU Ilmenau. The Scientific Advisory Board comprises a network of scientists from different disciplines, universities and research institutions. The project coordinator Dr. Patrick Maeder welcomed the participants and gave an overview of the objectives of the project. Afterward the project staff presented the current status of the project. After each presentation there were comments and recommendations on the part of board members. We would like to thank you for this constructive and stimulating meeting. Many ideas and comments will be incorporated in the next steps of the project.
