On the 28/03/2017, Fundación CARTIF (Valladolid) carried out an event for LIFE projects dissemination. The invited participants were the NCPs of three different countries Spain, Lithuania and Estonia, as well as several representatives from the Environment Ministries of the mentioned countries (24 attendants), besides some of the CARTIF personnel involved in this kind of projects (6-8 people).
The aim of the event was the showing and explaining the different projects in which CARTIF currently takes part (topics, objectives, development and current state of the project) included LIFE DIOXDETECTOR, as well as transfer the acquired knowledge through our experience in in this kind of projects.
The subjects we dealt with during the meeting were: preparation of successful proposals, project management (technical and administrative issues and tips), emerging trends in LIFE Programme, examples from CARTIF coordinated projects and role and function of NCPs.
Finally, a visit to the labs, pilot plants under development and centre facilities was made.
The results of the debate and dissemination session were very satisfying, since new networking relationships were established, so new partners incorporation from these countries to the LIFE programme will be possible in a near future, as well as the elaboration of new LIFE projects together, in which CARTIF may have a propelling role. In addition, CARTIF was disseminating the thematic topics we work in and the partners usually sought.
This is second visit that we receive from NCPs from different EU countries; the first was NCP from Bulgaria on the 14/12/2016.
