On October 8th, 2020 the project celebrated its virtual kick-off meeting, which served to introduce the team members, overview the project structure and organisation, look at the different tasks and management arrangements, and plan the main actions for the first months. This is the first of the consortium meetings, which will be celebrated every 6 months.
The first session of the meeting served to have an introduction and overview of the project by its coordinator, Prof. Antoni Llobet (ICIQ), and introduce all the partners and team members, including the current External Advisory Board members: Prof. Michael Grätzel (Professor of Physical Chemistry at EPFL) and Prof. Maximilian Fleischer (Chief Expert Energy, Siemens Energy).
After the coffee break, Work Package (WP) leaders made an overview of all the WPs, tasks, and the first actions of the project.
Finally, the afternoon session focused on the key management points, with an update on the Consortium Agreement status, administrative and financial issues, and planning of the next meeting and actions for the following 6 months of the project.
This has been the first opportunity for the consortium team to discuss the project together and now, work goes on!
