On the 18th of March 2022, the first meeting among the Laboratory Directors of EMME was held to exchange ideas about infrastructure and future synergies, as part of the European Union funded Twinning Project Promised (H2020, Grant No 811068). The meeting was part of WP4, “Sharing Best Practice”, of the project, and it aimed to discuss potential collaborations as we all share the same challenges in this area of the world. This is the first of hopefully a series of such meetings!
