It has been a very important Autumn for the CHIC project.  The technical and scientific activities have been increasing and a fruitful collaboration has started among partners. Moreover, two important events took place:
  • The first progress meeting took place in October in Heraklion. The meeting has seen the active participation of all partners with report on each WP activity and discussions on technical issues and future work.
  • The first intermediate review meeting was held by the European Commission in November. The WP leaders presented to the Commission and the reviewers’ panel the outputs of the first six months of activities. The informal outcome given at the end of the meeting was positive with the reviewers providing suggestions for improvements for the next period.
The CHIC dissemination team takes the chance to wish all of you happy and relaxing winter holidays!
