Mid-term check meeting
24 Jun 2021
The Mid-term check meeting was held on 17 June 2021. The S2S-Future network, including all principal researchers, ESRs and representatives of partner organisations, virtually met the Project Officer from the European Commission, Ms Stanka Miteva. The aim of the meeting was to assess the fulfilment of the recruitment procedure, the eligibility of the fellows, any deviations of the original training programme and to raise awareness on the fellows' and host institutions' rights and obligations.
Firstly, all scientists-in-charge and the representatives of partner organisations briefly presented their research team and described their role within the network. Then, Ms Miteva gave a presentation on general MSCA-ITN rules and suggestions on the correct grant management. Subsequently, the coordinator presented the progress report, including the scientific, training, networking and management aspects of the project. The ESRs then presented their background, research project, planned training, and career aspirations. In the afternoon, the Project Officer met the ESRs and the coordinator during the restricted sessions. At the end of the meeting, there was an open table discussion during which Ms Miteva gave their feedback and congratulated the Consortium and the ESRs on the excellent management of the action.
