The widespread roll-out of the vaccination process and the secure control of outbreaks in the European Union and Israel have enabled us to gradually get the PEARLS Project back on track. In September 2021, we resumed the first secondment after the periods of lockdown and trans-national travel restrictions, followed by virtual meetings of the Steering Committee and the Project Consortium at the beginning of 2022. During this process, three new beneficiaries have joined the Project in Spain (two new academic members, the universities of Pablo de Olavide and Huelva) and in Italy (a new company, Habitech). The Project will move forward following the road map set up to December 2023.
With our best hopes for this relaunch in uncertain times.
