RISIS WEEK took place in Rome January 26-29, 2015.
It had four objectives:
The central objective was to have one privileged moment to discuss about the development of the different activities and discuss future steps. This was group work structured by work package (Tuesday 27 afternoon and Wednesday 28 morning).
A second objective was to provide a broader view about what the project is doing and where it is going (Monday 26 afternoon), and to discuss transversal issues (3 groups Tuesday 27 morning).
A third objective was to offer time to see the different datasets in detail through demos (Wednesday 28 afternoon).
Finally, we have been asked to provide space for specific sessions. Thursday 29 morning was devoted to these sessions (and if needed pursuing work for some Work packages). It was followed by an open debate with our Project Review Board (PRB). We have hold in the same day the meeting of the Governing Board (that is overseeing the development of the project).
