The official Kick-off Meeting of the cVPP project was held in Eindhoven on December 13th and 14th 2017. As leading partner of the consortium, the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) invited all project partners to this two-day-meeting in the Netherlands.
The meeting was opened by Anna Wieczorek and Geert Verbong, from the School of Innovation Sciences, Eindhoven University of Technology, who welcomed the participants to the project’s kick-off. The meeting was attended by representatives of all eight partner organisations as well as by three sub-partners from countries of the Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland. A representative of the Dutch National Contact point for the Interreg Northwest Europe (NWE), Ms. Jacqueline Brouwer, also joined the meeting.
The project kick-off was a great opportunity for all partners to review the project objectives, main outputs and the work plan. Afterwards, a presentation of the project’s Work Packages was performed by the project partners, followed by a short overview of deliverables and expected results foreseen in phase 1, which provided a deeper insight into partners’ overall work. Following that, partners clarified on how they will be involved in the project (who will do what), discussed the management and coordination procedures and briefly outlined the basic guidelines of the Interreg NWE Programme.
The meeting was rounded up with the final discussion of the project and key issues on which partners agreed upon.
