MASTECS partners organized its 3rd workshop (face-to-face meeting) that would have taken place originally in Bologna, Italy. However, due to concerns about the Covid-19 outbreak, the workshop has been fully conducted in a virtual form via a specialized platform.
Even for a good reason, the consortium has missed its original physical meeting this time in Bologna, Italy planned to be hosted by Marelli due to the fact that the main priority of all partners is to stay healthy and keep working toward achieving all MASTECS goals successfully.
The MASTECS consortium convened for 3 days to discuss the project status and development. Topics covered were as follows:
Tuesday, 3 November 2020:
- Project status and expected work in phase 2.
- Dissemination and communication.
- Commercialization and exploitation.
Wednesday, 4 November 2020:
- Certification and qualification session.
Thursday, 5 November 2020:
- Planning for the future and wrap-up.
Each work package (WP) leader presented updates, progress, and future plans. The coordinator, as well as all partners, gave valuable comments and feedback to work efficiently in synergy to develop the MASTECS project. The workshop achieved its goals to align strategies and define immediate next steps. Therefore, the time invested by all partners was very productive as all expectations were met.
