20th - 21st May 2019 in Reims, France
The AI4DI project started with a kick-off meeting which took place on May 20th – 21st 2019 at University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne in Reims, France. The kick-off was inaugurated by the project coordinator Mr Reiner John (Infineon Technologies). Work Package leaders presented the planning of their work for the first year of the project. Supply Chain leaders gave thought-provoking overviews of the key issues related to technology application areas and overviews of the different industries. The main objectives for the meeting were to set the official start of the project, to establish connections between all partners, to provide clarifications about administrative aspects, and to define the specific work that each participant is going to fulfil during the project lifetime.
The meeting culminated with a tour of the winery and vineyards at Maison de Champagne Vranken-Pommery, where meeting participants learned about the growing of grapevines, receive a guided tour of the cellars, and got to know about the challenges this industry is facing.
