Project kick-off meeting

The Kick off Meeting of the WAVES project took place on 9th June 2016 at St George’s, University of London. In attendance were members of the six Partner Institutions as well as three members from the Associate Partner Institutions: Université Nice Sophia Antipolis (France), Hôpital Cheikh Khalifa Ibn Zaid (Morocco) and University of Calgary (Canada).

This meeting was the first face to face Meeting of the consortium, despite more than 8 Online Meetings were held since the project was accepted for funding in November 2015.  The work carried out on the needs analysis since the official start of the project (January 2016) has allowed the group to concentrate on the development of the deliverables of the WP1 (Standards and Specification) in a workshop format during the meeting. During the second part of the meeting, the group started laying the foundations for the development of WP2 (Technical Development and Testing) and WP3 (Knowledge development) arranging several agreements for all the partners to ensure the achievement of the outputs.

After this meeting, the group have been committed to working together using online meetings until the next Face to Face meeting, which will take place in Barcelona, August 2016 as part of the dissemination activity in the international AMEE conference.
