THEROS 1st Plenary meeting took place, in a hybrid mode, between 13th to 14th of December 2023, in Novi Sad, Serbia and via MS Teams online platform.

The inaugural day commenced with a comprehensive update from the THEROS coordinator, providing insights into the project’s progress during its first year. The sessions covered diverse aspects, including the co-design of THEROS requirements and system architecture, as well as THEROS monitoring, adulteration detection, and traceability components. Additionally, the THEROS team shed light on user-centric tools, models for enhanced transparency, verification, interoperability, and green accountability, on THEROS pilot demonstrations and the THEROS high impact creation and sustainability. The day concluded with a presentation on risk management and mitigation planning, followed by an engaging workshop on the THEROS Toolbox high-level architecture and its interdependencies.
