Mid-term check meeting

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.


S2S-FUTURE project gathers an outstanding European research and training network of 15 PhD students, hosted at world-leading academic institutions and industrial companies, whose aim is to develop the S2S paradigm as a powerful vector for understanding sedimentary accumulations as natural resources.

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860383.
