The SCOPE project has started!

The Kick-off meeting took place at FH JOANNEUM’s premises in Graz, Austria, on 30th - 31st October 2017. The meeting brought together the project partners face to face for the first time. Members of the consortium have been welcomed by the project manager, Dimitrios Doukas (FH JOANNEUM), who opened the working sessions presenting a detailed outline of the project. Each partner organization took the opportunity to present their work and experience to the group. Intellectual Outputs leaders provided details on their work plans and all partners set the upcoming deadlines and tasks. The working sessions were lively debated.

Other main topics of discussion were:

  • Discussion on the project management and the organization of the communication between the partnerships;
  • Administrative and financial issues - progress and financial reports, deliverables, plans, strategies;
  • Dissemination activities – review of work, methodology, tools and results;
  • Setting an action plan for the next months – tasks, deadlines and responsible partners.

All discussions were held in a friendly atmosphere and there was a joint motivation to produce good quality results. The team’s preparation before the meeting was excellent and the partners’ involvement during the meeting was great. The overall evaluation of the organization and the results of the meeting were very positive.
