The c4c (conect4children) Kick-off Meeting in Berlin last week was a resounding success. This milestone project, bringing together 43 international partners, has certainly hit the ground running.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants for their valuable contribution and input.

In particular, the break-out and plenary sessions proved highly productive. Moreover, it was lovely having more informal social exchanges during the dinners and evenings in general. The attendees’ energy and enthusiasm (on full display in the delightful group photo!) were greatly appreciated. We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration over the coming months and years.

Needless to say, we also extend our warmest thanks to Bayer for hosting and organizing this remarkable event. Over 160 guests were welcomed to the Bayer offices in Berlin. Their professional organization, not to mention the wonderful weather, ensured three memorable days and a successful start to this important project.
