The second SCORE partner meeting took place from 23 to 25 October 2018 in Ghent, Belgium. The meeting had a two-day programme filled with interesting sessions, but also with a lot of opportunities for the partners to network.

One of the most important agenda points was the bilateral meetings between the partners arranged as a "speed-dating". The aim of this session was to create collaboration between the partners and the session had a very good outcome. Another session included an agile restrospective on the good, bad and ugly of what works and what doesn't (yet) in SCORE.

Stevan Rudinac from Amsterdam Data Science said, "Amsterdam Data Science had interesting discussions with various partners that helped us get a better picture about the challenges different cities are facing."

The SCORE project has a lot of different partners working together, and therefore, it is important to set aside some time for sessions like this, where the partners get to know each other better and find shared challenges and possibilities for collaboration. SCORE has great energy, ideas and willingness from the partnership to collaborate. The partners involved are ambitious and eager to learn and seeing the value of the partnership.

"As the coordinator for this project, I was happy to see such an engagement from the participants side. I am looking forward to the next period for this project, where we hopefully will begin to see some of the solutions being shaped", said Juliette Tenart from Bax & Company after the meeting.
