Our first AHM, which took place at the University of Amsterdam on the 9th and 10th of May, attracted over 40 participants with an excellent collection of speakers and short meetings. On Day 1, presentations from all Work Packages took place to update the Consortium on the developments within each, followed by a discussion on the VECMA Toolkit (VECMAtk) release plans and invited talks from Core and Associate Partners. The end of day 1 saw General Assembly meeting to discuss and vote on matters pertinent to the project governance and a concurrent Science and Innovation Advisory Board meeting. On Day 2, we had a full agenda of speakers from Core and Associate Partners explaining their latest work in Multiscale Modelling, VVUQ, Algorithms and Analysis, and HPC Infrastructure. We will be able to share some of this content on the website shortly. The AHM came to a close with a session dedicated to VECMA’s WP1 – Management.
