Second data pre-release of EVS2017
The announcement of the second data pre-release gained a lot of interest also on Twitter (see here and here).
The showcase event of SERISS has been a very nice occasion for networking and present EVS and the tools developed during this project. Remarkable for EVS: the presentation of the myEVS (a video is also available here). EVS was present at the event with a stand, organized by the junior scholars at the central team in Tilburg
