Attendance to the LIFE17 Climate Change kick-off meeting in Brussels

On October 2-3, 2018, the kick-off meeting of the LIFE17 programme for Climate Change in Brussels was carried out in the premises of Crowne Plaza Hotel. Our company, through its representative Mrs. Despoina Vlachaki, attended the meeting as a partner (associated beneficiary) in the implementation of the project LIFE GrIn “Promoting urban integration of GReen INfrastructure to improve climate governance in cities”.
At the meeting general issues were presented and discussed in regard with the following:

  • The policies and rules of the European Commission as well as of the LIFE programme
  • The interaction among the coordinating partners of the LIFE projects with EASME, as well as the monitoring and advising services that will be provided by ΝΕΕΜΟ team to all LIFE projects
  • The obligations of the LIFE projects on financial and technical issues as well as on matters that relate to the dissemination of the project.
    The above meeting was an opportunity of familiarizing with other LIFE projects that have now started and which refer to climate change issues. Finally, the kick-off meeting worked as a networking platform among the participating projects dealing with common action fields.
