On 18 and 19 November 2021, the VITbox team met at the ECML in Graz to reflect on the outcomes of the ECML workshop in September with 34 participants from all over Europe. The aims of the meeting were to discuss the development and revision of the VITbox resources, to work on dissemination activities and to plan a network meeting to take place in April 2022.
The team has been looking back at a series of successful events and has received useful feedback on the resources developed by participants at the ECML workshop, conference presentations, workshops and webinars. Participants have shown great interest in the resources and contributed with valuable comments and suggestions. The team will now work on the further development of the project webpage and make the resources available to a larger audience for dissemination and feedback purposes, while continuing to develop, pilot and finalise the remaining VITbox modules.
