31/01/2024 – During the past 28th and 29th of November, the entire Dig_IT consortium met at Core Innovation Centre’s headquarters in Athens, Greece. Konstantinos Nikolopoulos and Valia Iliopoulou were the Dig_ITers in charge of hosting the more than 40 project participants who travelled to Greece, and made the technical meeting a success.

During the first day, representatives of Nemko Norlab, ICCS, Brunel University London, ITAINNOVA, Tampere University, Schneider Electric, and SYSTRA Subterra presented the current status of each WP and their progress. In addition, during the afternoon, the Dig_IT consortium held two workshops. One focused on Standardisation and the other on System Integration.

On the second day, it was the turn of STRATAGEM Ltd, CORE Innovation Centre, and ITAINNOVA to present the current status and progress of the WP that are leading. Meanwhile, Ro Technology, wearecolab, and Blue Ocean Projects conducted the interviews recordings to key project members for the final video, which will be produced to showcase the achievements of Dig_IT, as part of the communication and dissemination activities. Finally, the day was concluded with the Project Steering Committee, led by the Project Coordinator, María García Camprubí.

Thanks to this face-to-face meeting, it fostered collaboration between partners and led to discussions that laid the groundwork for enhancing and propelling the project forward in its final months.

19/10/2023Ro Technology, the Dig_IT communication, and dissemination task leader, embarked during the summer and autumn of 2023 on a long journey to capture the captivating locations of our project use cases in Italy, Norway, and Finland. 

On first place, Ro Technology, together with MDF Studio, the video producers, travelled to the province of Bergamo in Italy to visit Marini Marmi. There, they had the chance to interview from first hand to Giulio Marini, owner and CEO of Marini Marmi and Matteo Moioli, member of Marini Marmi team. During their visit, our Dig_ITers were able to film exclusive shots of the exterior and interior of the mine, as well as its facilities.

On October, they headed to Norway and visited the Tellnes mine from our Titania use case, gathering excellent photo and video material, and interviewing Marte Toegersen, as Titania’s responsible for Dig_IT Project.

The next destination of this adventure was the Kemi mine from Tapojarvi located in Finland. There, our Dig_ITers could capture stunning shots of the mine and interviewed Markus Partanen, Maintenance manager at Tapojarvi.

The last stop of the journey was HANNUKAINEN MINING OY, located in Kolari within the Arctic Circle. Surrounded by the snow, our Dig_ITers were able to interview Jaana Koivumaa, manager, and Tuomas Lahti, environmental engineer at Hannukainen.

All in all, collecting material for our final project video has turned out to be an incredible experience to visit the use cases, meet the wonderful team behind it, and see the fruits of the project first-hand.

22/09/2023 – The Dig_IT Project consortium marked a significant milestone as they held a highly productive Online Technical Meeting last Friday, 22 September. The meeting served as a crucial juncture for the consortium to intensify their efforts, analyze the current project status, and deliberate over pending tasks.

With just eight months remaining until the conclusion of this ambitious project, the meeting, which commenced at 9:30 AM and concluded around 3:30 PM, witnessed the active participation of all 16 project partners.

The meeting kicked off with an introduction that provided an overview of the project’s overall progress. Then, participants were guided through the upcoming steps crucial to executing the second reporting period successfully.

Subsequently, each Work Package leader took the stage one by one, delivering presentations on the status and advancement of their respective tasks. These sessions included a review of accomplishments from the previous project period, an outline of pending tasks awaiting completion, and a clear roadmap for future actions. The dynamic discussions that followed provided a valuable place for all partners to share their insights.

The event, attended by approximately 40 participants, fostered an atmosphere of interaction, enabling attendees to engage in meaningful exchanges of questions and answers. This collaborative approach allowed each participant the freedom to contribute their unique perspectives, enriching the discourse and propelling the project forward.

María García Camprubí from ITAINNOVA, serving as the Project Coordinator, played a pivotal role in chairing the meeting, ensuring that the meeting ran smoothly and efficiently.

As the Dig_IT Project consortium reaches this critical juncture, their dedication and collaborative spirit continue to drive progress toward their shared objectives.
