Today the NEWCOMERS kick-off meeting has started in Ljubljana, hosted by our consortium member Dr. Tanja Kamin of University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences. With three consortium members based in Ljubljana (University of Ljubljana, GEN-I, d.o.o., CONSENSUS, d.o.o.) the decision to kick-off the project here was a natural one.
During the coming two days, all 8 consortium partners will engage in discussions on the different work packages and related tasks, with the aim to create a common understanding of the work to be done in each work package as well as the goals to be achieved in the project.
The second meeting day will be dedicated to issues around the communication, dissemination and exploitation of our work as well as to project organization (such as workflows, planning tools and data management). We will leave Ljubljana on Friday with a joint vision for the project, a clear agenda for the next steps and heaps of enthusiasm about the project and the contribution we can make to the sustainable energy transitions in Europe.
