PARIS REINFORCE Kick-off Meeting
The kick – off meeting of the PARIS REINFORCE project was successfully held in Athens, on the 10th and 11th of June 2019. 38 researchers and collaborators from 10 countries participated. The event featured a number of insightful presentations by highly qualified experts setting the tone for the actions that will follow in the coming months, as well as the strategic planning for the entire duration of the project.
Participants had the opportunity to meet in person, overview PARIS REINFORCE expectations, and discuss the challenges of the forthcoming tasks.
More particularly, during the first day, the PARIS REINFORCE coordinator demonstrated the project’s overview and vision, while representatives of the consortium presented their institute and team, their work experience and role in the project, as well as their expectations from the project's implementation.
During the second day of the meeting, the Project Advisor congratulated the project’s partners for their vision and encouraged them to deliver on the expectations, since PARIS REINFORCE is an ambitious project with the aim to have great impact on the support of Paris Agreement, by contributing to the EU's and other countries' efforts in the development of their National Determined Contributions (NDCs) and to the formulation of policy measures towards the fight for climate change.
