INCREASE Christmas Party

On 18th of December, we had our INCREASE Christmas party for all INCREASE partners. The event was a great occasion to (virtually) socialize and strengthen die INCREASE community, especially since the Covid-pandemic impeded us to meet altogether in person so far.

The event started with a lively review of the INCREASE year by project coordinator Roberto Papa (Università Politecnica delle Marche). Then, Marta Vasconcelos (Universidade Católica Portuguesa) gave insights and instructions to the Citizen Science Experiment that had freshly launched earlier that week. Her presentation was followed by a short demonstration of the INCREASE App by Emanuele Frontoni (Università Politecnica delle Marche). As special guests, we had invited Alice and Daniele, the creators of our amazing INCREASE project clip. They gave us some background information on how the clip was born and on their thoughts behind the creative choices. To make our Christmas Party a true party, we finally played a lively Christmas game, organized by Tamara Messer (EURICE). We had a lot of fun! Thanks to everyone who joined the party!

INCREASE is wishing all INCREASE partners, stakeholders and friends a Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!
