From 1 to 3 July 2019, the steering committee of the RECAP preterm (Research on European Children and Adults born Preterm) project met in Leiden in Southern Netherlands. All work package leaders, in total more than 20 participants, joined the meeting.
As the half-time mark of the project has been reached, the meeting participants took the opportunity to look back at was has been reached so far and defined milestones for the coming years.
The steering committee also welcomed a guest speaker from the LifeCycle project (https://lifecycle-project.eu), coordinator Professor Vincent Jaddoe from Erasmus MC who gave an introduction into the project which also works on establishing a database for cohorts.
Again, the meeting has been a very fruitful exchange of ideas and we look forward to working on the agreed next steps in the second half of the project.
The RECAP preterm project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 733280.
