TRUSTS Female PowerCould you finish the sentence? I’m known for …. being a nit-picker!

My best moment in TRUSTS so far was … not just one! Participating in two webinars as a panellist reporting on the progress and vision of TRUSTS project, as well as the commencement of the use case trials execution were a few grateful moments! But then again, we shape our every day and opportunities for being succesful constantly rise.

Thank you! We are glad to have you on board!
