In the english community call, the attendance was not to high, but we take the opportunity to record it. You can see it in the next link.
For the second one, the attendance was really high. 29 people were present in the Spanish community call. So, the projects and tools presented in the previous community call, on this occasion were the focus of numerous questions, ideas and thoughts. Thus we met with projects like Cyano. They want to make eutrophication an environmental problem of maximum attention.
