As the Network nears the end of its second funded year, our Mid-Term Meeting is drawing closer. The latter is a contractual obligation with the objective to assesses the fulfilment of all networking aspects (scientific, training, management, networking, etc.). On this day our Research Executive Agency (REA) project officer will join us for a constructive dialog, which is considered to be a valuable source of feedback to both the consortium and the REA.
A second highlight of this meeting will be the Diabetes Awareness Day and Fundraiser. This outreach activity, organised by our ESRs, will feature a variety of interesting scientific talks about diabetes targeted to a broad audience. The event is not only meant to bring knowledge and expertise on this growing health challenge to the general public, but also to raise money for the Associació de Diabètics de Catalunya (ADC) summer camps for children with diabetes. These camps offer both typical fun activities, as well as education on diabetes and on how to live with the disease. For more information on this initiative, please visit the act4health.net website.
