The FrontSeat project (Fostering Opportunities Towards Slovak Excellence in Advanced Control for Smart Industries), which received support under the Horizon Europe program, has completed its Kick-off Project Meeting. It is an important milestone within the project, in which STU acts as a coordinator.
