Despite the current situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Core Teams of Activity 3 continue to work intensively on the implementation of the COMEX Services. However, due to current travel restrictions, all Activity 3 Core Team meetings, which are already planned for the first half of 2020, will be held as web meetings.
