On the 29th and the 30th of September we will be hosting the EOSC-Nordic Second General Assembly in Copenhagen, Denmark. We look very much forward to this first physical event in a long time!

The first day of the Second General Assembly is dedicated to work package meetings for the project participants. The location will be at the Technical University of Denmark. In the afternoon the participants are also invited for a social event in Copenhagen and a dinner afterwards.
