This year the General Assembly of i2connect will be organised in two different sequences. A face-to-face event is planned in Terme Tuhelj ( Croatia) with a series of interactive workshops and various field visits of various Operational Groups. This has been co-organised with our colleagues from the Croatian Ministry of Agriculture (MofA) and the Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry in Slovenia (CAFs). Project partners have not met in person from the Kick off meeting and we think that this will be an important milestone to mark the next steps. We are sad that several partners are not able to come because of the complicated health scenario in several European countries.
