6th Lynx (Virtual) Plenary Meeting

 

Starting from today, March 16th, until Wednesday March 18th, we are virtually attending 6h Lynx Plenary Meeting. The original plan was to have it in Arnhem, hosted by DNV GL. However, due to the exceptional situation caused by COVID-19, we have cancelled everything and celebrating the meeting remotely. During these days, we will take the final decisions regarding Lynx pilots and solving blocking issues, since the final review is approaching.
