Last 14 of February 2018, GATES partners have participated at the first European Commission Review Meeting that took place at EUROFORUM, Luxembourg. The review meeting was led by Mikolt Csap, GATES Project officer, who counted with the assistance of two outside experts:
- Teresa Afonso do Paço, Assistant Professor at University of Lisbon
- Jesse Himmelstein, CRI - Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires
The review meeting covered the project activities carried out by partners within the first 12 months of the project. Project Officer, as well as outside experts, have examined:
- the degree to which the work plan has been carried out and whether all deliverables were completed
- whether the objectives are still relevant and provide scientific or industrial breakthrough potential
- the management procedures and methods of the project
- the beneficiaries’ integration within the project
- the expected potential scientific, technological, economic, competitive and social impact, and plans for using and disseminating results.
The review meeting concluded with a positive evaluation of the Project and interesting recommendations provided by experts. Partners engaged themselves to continue working on the project in order to advance with the development of the GATES game and to present deliverables on time.
