SMILE Action on July 11th successfully passed the first annual review in Brussels! The coordinator of SMILE Action, Dr Dimitrios Tzovaras, presented the overall progress of the project, while each work package leader reported on the status and achievements of the corresponding work package. In addition, a demo session took place demonstrating some of the technological solutions under development. We have also received a very constructive feedback from the reviewers, which is expected to be extremely valuable towards the second year of the project. The best is yet to come!
