On October 4, the M²OLIE partners gathered for their annual partner meeting. At 11 a.m., the Research Campus Administration Office welcomed the participants with a snack and exchange at CUBEX ONE. The majority of the now 28 partners were represented on site or joined the hybrid event online. Professor Maier reported on the progress that has been made in M²OLIE over the past year, particularly with regard to the closed-loop process. Professor Stallkamp pointed out perspectives for continuation and cooperation between academic and industry partners. In the following discussion the representatives of the partners had the chance to express their wishes and expectations regarding the third funding phase and beyond. We would like to thank all participants of this year’s M²OLIE partner meeting and look forward to a continued very good cooperation!
