The consortium presented the aims of the project and the activities that will be conducted during the project’s life cycle and discussed about its status and the tasks ahead. The aim of the meeting was to start a dialogue between the different project stakeholders in which partners gained a deeper knowledge of the peculiarities of each organization / institution, and better understood the project vision and the proposed means to achieve that vision.
Overall, the meeting was an enriching experience that increased the mutual understanding among the consortium, and also highlighted the risks involved due to its heterogeneity.
