After the event, the partners of the EEN-Ukraine consortium received positive feedback from the conference participants:

Yevheniy Rodin, Director of NewGround LLC:

“The participation was interesting and useful. Especially the cases of data mining, machine learning, sound/picture recognition. The registration platform and online broadcasting was also useful. It was possible to filtered interesting participants, find all information from their profile and write a direct message. It is even more convenient to look for business contacts than participate in live conference. It would be very useful to have the access to participants profiles after the event as I still research it to find potential partners. As for difficulties, it was not entirely clear how to activate my availability for meetings, I asked the administrator to check it but it doesn’t work. It was also unclear the procedure of adding to working groups. In general, thank you for conference. I will try to participate in the next event.”
