The third consortium meeting took place in Reading on 15-16 March 2012. It was hosted by the University of Reading. The project meeting programme included a project workshop, review active work packages and deliverables, discussions of administrative issues and planning activities for the next six months. During the two days partners had time for some technical discussions and brainstorming sessions as well as one to one meetings to ensure progress in technical developments envisaged by this collaborative project.
The workshop was organized by the Institute of Nanotechnology and took place on 15 March 2012 – the first day of the meeting. The idea of the workshop was to help project partners, especially junior members of staff who joined the consortium after it started, to better understand the concept of the development and its challenges. All nine planned presentations were delivered by senior members of the consortium in informal way and sparked a number of questions and short discussions. Prof Maria Tomoaia-Cotisel, appointed recently by the EC as the project technical advisor took part both in the workshop and consortium meeting.
