Kick-off Meeting

The EP4A project has been launched on 24-25 October in Zagreb (Croatia), with the participation of 4 partners and the associate partner.

This meeting allowed:

  • Gathering all partners involved in the project (e.g. administration, financial issues, technical issues, etc.) in one location to become familiar with each other and ensure fluent communication between and within the partner organisations involved in the EP4A project.
  • Detailed project presentation
  • Agreeing on different procedures for the smooth project implementation
  • Reviewing and validating EP4A objectives
  • Establishing activities and goals to be achieved in the short-term

The kick-off meeting has been organized in a structured manner consisting of project presentation, work-package presentations and Project Management Committee meeting.

Each work-package has been presented separately with the aim to plan and define the different tasks that will enable EP4A to meet its aim, objectives and deadlines. Also, discussions on the organization of tasks and responsibilities of participants have been held during the Kick-off Meeting.

In addition, the Project Management Committee (PMC) has been set up. The main responsibilities of the PMC will include:

  • oversight monitoring of work package progress and ensuring progress remains to schedule;
  • oversight of deliverables;
  • decisions concerning the work plan and any major changes;
  • decisions regarding any amendment to the terms of the Agency contract and Partners’ Agreement;
  • decisions concerning possible premature comple-tion/termination of the project;
  • amicable settling of disputes arising from project im-plementation; press releases and joint publications by partners with regard to the project
