Lettre d'information / Newsletter 5 - août/August 2022

Cette cinquième lettre d’information est publiée avec un peu de retard. Nous vous prions de nous en excuser. Ce retard s’explique en partie par le fait que nous souhaitions présenter des modifications importantes de l’application qui viennent tout juste d’être mises en ligne.

This fifth newsletter is published late. We apologise for this delay. This is partly due to the fact that we wanted to present important changes to the MiCorr+ application that have just been released.

Lettre d'information / Newsletter 4 - novembre/November 2021

Tout comme en 2020, le projet MetalPAT a, à nouveau, été impacté en 2021 par le Covid-19. Si l’application, ses moteurs de recherche ont continué à évoluer, les missions auprès des acteurs de terrain ont été fortement perturbées.

As in 2020, the MetalPAT project was again impacted in 2021 by Covid-19. While the application and its search engines continued to evolve, the collaborations with some end-users were severely disrupted.

Lettre d'information / Newsletter 3 - mai/May 2021

Les activités du projet MetalPAT ont démarré au moment de la mise en place du 1er confinement lié au Covid-19 en mars 2020. L’année 2020 s’est déroulée en périodes hachées de déconfinements et re-confinements. Devant ces aléas difficilement gérables, nous nous sommes adaptés et cette troisième lettre montre que le projet progresse malgré tout, comme attendu.


MetalPAT project activities started at the time of the 1st Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020. The year 2020 was conducted with periods of deconfinement and re-confinement. Faced with these unmanageable hazards, we have adapted and this third letter shows that the project is progressing as expected.

Lettre d’information / Newsletter 2 – novembre / November 2020

Des confinements successifs qui ont peu affecté la progression du projet…

MetalPAT est un projet pluridisciplinaire. Nous avons eu la chance de tous nous rencontrer avant le 1er confinement. La mise en place de visioconférences de mars à juin 2020 a permis la poursuite des échanges et la progression du projet. Les réunions en présentiel ont repris à l’été bien que l’agenda de chacun soit bien rempli. Le 2ème confinement commençant, nos échanges virtuels ont repris de plus bel.

A succession of lockdowns that had little effect on the progress of the project…

MetalPAT is a multidisciplinary project. We had the chance to meet all of us before the 1st lockdown. The setting up of videoconferences from March to June 2020 allowed the continuation of exchanges and the progress of the project. The face-to-face meetings resumed in the summer, although everyone's agenda was full. As the second lockdown began, our virtual exchanges resumed.

Lettre d’information / Newsletter 1 – mai / May 2020

Un premier trimestre confiné mais actif...

Suite à la réunion de lancement du projet le 6 février 2020, nous avons très vite démarré nos premières actions. La crise sanitaire actuelle a bien évidemment impacté le projet car aucune réunion en présentiel n’a pu être mise en place. Toutefois le travail avance comme le montrent les actions développées dans la lettre d'information.

A confined but active first quarter...

Following the project kick-off meeting on 6 February 2020, we very quickly started our first actions. The current health crisis has obviously impacted the project because no face-to-face meetings could be set up. However, the work is progressing, as shown by the actions developed in the newsletter.
