ECOMATES Mid – Term Meeting

March 18 - March 19

The first Mid-Term Meeting of the ECOMATES project will take place on March 18th and 19th 2024, at the European Membrane Institute in Montpellier and under the coordination of the University of Montpellier.

The programme of the meeting consists of two days:

  • On Monday 18 March an internal meeting will take place where the project results will be presented to the Supervisory Board and Steering Board, and preparations will be made for the meeting with the P.O.
  • On Tuesday 19 March, the actual meeting will take place in the presence of the designated Project Officer, Prof. Campo Cossio Luhaces Maria Emma.


The Mid-Term meeting is a tool to assess the fulfilment of all aspects (scientific, training, management, networking, etc.) described in Annex I-Action Description (DoA) of the Grant Agreement (GA). Particular attention is paid to training activities and networking aspects, including activities between different sectors.
As such, the MTM is not simply a scientific evaluation of the Network, nor should it be the first point where problems are brought to the attention of the Research Executive Agency (REA). It should be understood as a constructive dialogue between the network participants and the REA Project Officer and is a valuable source of feedback to both the consortium and the REA.

Below is the full programme for the day on 19 March:
