The TRACK Team have had some busy weeks. In recent months we have been present at numerous international meetings, including the PIC meeting in the Netherlands.

The jury judged that TRACK is innovative, well thought out and has great social value. Moreover, behind TRACK there is a good consortium. That is why the jury considers the chances of success to be high. However, TRACK started too recently to be able to deliver concrete results. That is why TRACK ended just outside the top 5, but with the invitation to sign up again for the next tender.
