With active participation of the attending audience, they discussed the difficulties and possible solutions to them, giving invaluable advice from their own experience.
Afterwards, the DiFens project was presented, together with a demonstration of the DiFens mentoring platform www.difens.eu and the other project output – the DiFens e-Manual.
