After an HDHL INTIMIC introductory presentation with information on the reporting process, special guests Lauren Lissner and Laura Fernandez presented themselves and the organisation they represent. Next, the coordinators of the four funded projects (EndObesity, GrowH!, I-PREGNO and SO-NUTS) presented their projects with a specific focus on the stakeholder involvement and dissemination strategies. They also reflected on the possible impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their project and possible solutions. During these interactive sessions, useful ideas and tips were exchanged between the researchers and stakeholder participants. Several synergies between the different projects were revealed during the meeting. This motivated the researchers to build collaborations between the different consortia. For example, there was a lot of enthusiasm to start an early career researcher network. To wrap-up the meeting, participants were given the opportunity to reflect on the interactive sessions and to share their conclusions, ideas or questions in a session with an online brainstorm tool.
