The General Assembly meetings take place twice per year and include senior representatives from each full partner of the ADVANCE project. The 2nd General Assembly meeting took place in Sitges, Spain between 27th-28th March 2014.
During the meeting, the Partners and Associate Partners shared updates on project progress to date and discussed how to move forward both at Work Package and Consortium levels. The two-day assembly was attended by over 65 people, including representatives from 25 of the full Partners, and 10 Associate Partners.
The meeting also allowed for several workshops to take place in relation to the ADVANCE Work Packages and thus contributed to good communication and working relations within and between the Work Packages.
In order to take further advantage of the gathering of Partners and Associate Partners; film-makers from the EU initiative CommHERE were also present at the meeting, where they had the opportunity to interview some of the key members of the ADVANCE Project. The footage will be used to develop a short video which will be used for communication on the outcome of the ADVANCE project to the media, the general public and other target groups including the EC in all of Europe and beyond.
