GIAP team members did their first general virtual meeting last Friday. The meeting focused on the organisation and workings of our new project management platform. There were a few technical problems related to the configuration of the internet browser of two members that did not allow them to intervene. They could still listen to the group conversation though and send text messages. These issues have been now solved and we expect our next meeting this Friday to take place without problems.
The quarantine situation in Catalonia is hard and is affecting many people. We are lucky that we can continue with many aspects of our work from home. Despite the obvious limitations, this situation is forcing us to develop new ways of working together even from a distance, to keep contact and strengthen our collaborative work. We have no doubt that in the middle term, what we have learnt during this period, and not just in terms of technical capabilities, will become an important asset for the whole group.
