In Budapest for the FP7 ICT Proposer’s day

I’ve spent the end of this work week in Budapest, at the ICT Proposers Day. For those of you who do not know about this, this is a network opportunity put together by the European Comission to get together people that are interested in putting together a paneuropean research proposal on an ICT topic.

Per Ola and myself have been networking like crazy and exploring some extremely interesting possibilities. Here are a few pictures of the very successful event:

For the reception, they took us by steam train to the Hungarian train museum, where we saw a pretty cool set of old engines and train wagons (just a couple photos above).

After all the hard work, we had a bit of time to visit the centre of the city, and take a photosynth of the Hungarian Parliament Building.

Getting busier

The good weather is gone (for now), but our place is just as beautiful in the rain. Today, I will try for a run in the evening, but for now you can check out the photosynth (a kind of panorama) that I made just north of Cellardyke during my run:

I’ll try to keep these coming! 🙂

Newbie in Scotland

Kate and I have been in Scotland for almost a week. So far, we are loving it. The weather is wonderful, our place is amazing, and the people have been wonderfully welcoming. We live now in Cellardyke, which is a tiny fishing village, about ten miles from St Andrews.

For our first impressions of Scotland, it’s best that you check Kate’s funny account of our landing and first days.

Tomorrow I will start work at the SACHI group. Meanwhile, you check out some of the photographs that I made around where we live.
