The EMBARK webinar series continues in the fall, starting September 1. We already have three confirmed invited speakers who will present their research and be contrasted to EMBARK members presenting the work performed in the project. This will be followed by a discussion and Q&A. All the webinars, except for one, will take place at 14:00 CEST (12:00 UTC).
