On 29 and 30 September 2022, the VITbox team met at the ECML in Graz to discuss the final steps that need to be taken to successfully complete the project. The aims of the meeting were to discuss the development and revision of the VITbox resources, to implement the suggestions received from participants who attended the ECML workshop and webinar, and to discuss future dissemination activities (i.e. conference presentations, webinars, workshops and publications in journals and conference proceedings). The team looked back at a series of successful events where it received useful feedback on the draft resources developed with the support from participants at the ECML workshop in 2021 and the network meeting in April 2022, at conference presentations, during workshops and webinars. Participants have shown a lot of interest in the resources and contributed with valuable comments and suggestions. The team will now work on the final 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 files.
