5th Progress meeting successfully completed!

From 21-23 October, the CHIC partners gathered in Bologna, Italy, for their 5th progress meeting. Hosted by the CINECA Supercomputing centre, the CHIC partners demonstrated their latest work and achievements within the project and discussed the workflows and the goals to be achieved in the coming months. Following a review meeting at the EC in July, 2015, work on a clinical demonstrator of CHIC tools and services was the focal point of this meeting. A dedicated technical meeting focusing on how to coordinate the technical activities so to achieve the expectations of the clinicians concluded the visit to CINECA.
