CHIC project coordinator, Georgios Stamatakos, is glad to inform all partners and stakeholders that the last CHIC interim review, which was held in Brussels on the 29th of January, was a clear success: the reviewers marked the progresses of the CHIC project “excellent” and all deliverables accepted.  Of key importance were the clinical narrative and the demonstration of a number of integrated hyper-models and technological tools and of the CHIC infrastructure in the clinical context.
Thank all partners for the great work done so far, the strong commitment to the project, and the persistence to get things working despite complexity!
Let’s keep our joint enthusiasm and sustain our research momentum looking forward to a great and clinically useful final outcome!
