Objectives of the meeting
Administrative and financial aspects on the project progress and reporting were reviewed and updated.
The meeting was organized on two parallel sessions chaired by the Theme Leaders and Co-Leaders (common session for Themes 2 and 3, independent session for Theme 4), to review interim results, to identify delays or deviations and strategies to overcome them, to reinforce collaborative agreements for the work development of different Tasks within each Theme.
During parallel sessions, organized as round table discussions, Theme Leaders confirmed the main strategies for the development of different tasks and provided the opportunity for oral presentations of WP leaders and/or task leaders to introduce a comprehensive overview (oral presentations) of the work developed since the Kickoff Meeting.
Ongoing work under Theme 1 and Theme 5 were presented and discussed during plenary sessions.
Fruitful discussions took place. Collaborations needed for the completion of work was strengthened. During a final joint session of the meeting, each Theme Leader presented a brief summary of conclusions taken during the different work sessions (work accomplished as well as on the work to be pursued within each Theme).
Very promising results on the work developed and fruitful collaborations anticipate a successful continuation of the project.
A social dinner was organized on a traditional restaurant allowing a friendly and relaxing atmosphere among participants.
