Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the PRIMAGE Project Consortium Meeting, which was scheduled for 28-29 April has been cancelled. In order to move the project forward and keep the momentum, the Consortium Meeting was replaced with 10 virtual workshops on different topics and took place over the course of 3 days.
Workshop topics included: (1) Gaining a better understanding of tumour growth; (2) Accessing the shared cloud directory; (3) PRIMAGE in BBMRI & Contribution to standards for metadata in imaging databanks; (4) PRIMAGE Platform live demo: integration of imaging data, clinical data and analysis modules; (5) PRIMAGE 1st REPORTING PERIOD - How to prepare your technical and financial report for the EC; (6) Clinical data & interactive visual systems for data exploration; (7) Data Management Plan (DMP); (8) Creating an application and running it on the cloud processing infrastructure; (9) Image processing and extraction of features; (10) Modeling of the tumour growth at the different scales.

Message from the Project Coordinator
We are currently in month 18th of the project and it is great to see the team achievements already visible for the scientific community. There were large improvements from the technological point of view, as we saw in our First Working Group Session last week, but also by exploring the so many faces of this project in the imaging biomarkers in childhood cancer management.
To date, PRIMAGE has been present, among others, in events such as the COMBINE 2019, the Chinese Congress of Radiology 2019, the EUSOMII Annual Meeting 2019, the Programme Committee for the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020) implementing Horizon Europe 2020, the SIOP Europe Annual Meeting - International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day (ICCD 2020), and the Toulouse Onco-Week 2020.
The feedback received at each of these events in which PRIMAGE was presented increases the passion we put in the project and gives us more hope in that all the objectives we have established in this project will be finally achieved, helping many children who sadly and unfairly suffer from NB or DIPG diseases.
On behalf of PRIMAGE partners, I can tell that we ALL will keep working hard on PRIMAGE until we develop the decision support system tool which will help radiologists and oncologists on the management of NB and DIPG diseases in the future.
