SATuRN Newsletter, Mar 2014: News, publications, videos & new seminar series!

In our first issue of 2014 (Vol. 3 Num. 1) our newsletter we focus on our new seminar series and publications and results from SATuRN partners. We also included interesting news, blogs, reports, tweets and training information produced by our network.
