  • - The 20th of January 2020 the ARCAID project had its kick-off meeting at the Amsterdam University Medical Centers, location AMC.

All PI's and partner organisations were invited, and quite a few of the partner organisations were able to be present. The meeting started with a welcome and overview from the ARCAID coordinator, Prof. van Vollenhoven, and continued with a welcome from the chair of the board of directors of the Amsterdam UMC. Then all PI's shortly presented their current line of research and the proposed projects for the fellows.
