FunGlass Scientific Board meeting:

On 12 March, 2021, the Scientific Board of FunGlass project held its regular annual meeting. As a year before, given the situation related to corona virus spreading, we could not meet our partners personally at FunGlass Centre. The meeting was held via electronic communication tool.
