This year's Annual Workshop was completely different to the face-to-face meetings we had in the last years at one of the associated partner universities. Due to Covid-19 we decided to not skip the workshop but rather go for a virtual alternative. With over 90 participants the ERCIS Annual Workshop was bigger than ever before and although we could only see each other on the screen, it was like a big family reunion. New partners had the chance to introduce themselves to the network and the competence centers gave an update about their interdisciplinary work.
