After one year and a half from the project begginings, FUDIPO consortium members met last 24-25 April in Brussels to present the project’s progress and new advances to the reviewers. The meeting was divided into two different sessions, the first one celebrated the first day exclusively among the consortium members and the second one with the presence of the reviewers.
First-day presentations were about the state of the project implementation in different case studies. Demonstrator leaders presented the progression status, new advances, drawbacks and to-do actions for future months. Finally, partners were divided into different working groups during workshops to discuss about the states of different ongoing tasks to evaluate actions done and plan future actions. Consortium members took advantage of this to improve communication and plan actions if needed.
The second day, different partners presented new advances and tasks evolution to reviewers. The day started with an initial presentation of deliverables and milestone status. Then, the chief engineer presented a summary of demonstrator status and technology development. Idener gave a presentation about the dissemination activities done until date and future activities according to dissemination plan. The financial status was presented by the project coordinator and presentations about the study cases were presented by demonstrator’s leaders. Mälarenergi, Tupras, MTT, Billerudkornäs and ABB presented an overview of the tasks progression. BestWood/Fraunhofer and Tieto also presented advances in sensor and architecture development respectively. Questions and suggestions were formulated by reviewers during different partners presentations, taking note of the valuable feedbacks.
The meeting was a useful experience to catch up on different tasks status. Next meeting will be held on 17-18 October 18, but the location it is not defined yet.
