Contents of the meeting from DoA

“The project starts with preliminary work on the conceptual framework (T1.1) and the data collection protocol (T2.1), as well as with the setup of the community of practice (WP5) and the initiation of the communication strategy (WP6), to enable full launch of these activities at the kick-off meeting (Month 1). Tasks 1.1 and 2.1 will be the core of the period between the Kick-off and the second project meeting, aimed at providing both a conceptual framework and a draft data collection protocol for WP2 case studies activities. Before the second meeting, the protocol will be tested by pilot collection of data within (T2.2) and outside (T2.3) Europe, while tasks 1.5 and 1.6 will start with the aim of incorporating legal and technical issues in the data collection procedures. Between the kick-off and the second project meeting also the first round of multiplier events (T6.4) will be held in order to start communication about the project. In addition, interaction with key EU players such as EIP and Rural Development Networks will start (T6.3), as well as coordination with other projects (T7.1)”

Based on the above, the meeting has the following objectives:

  • Allow fine tune and discussion of the overall project strategy
  • Discuss case studies already identified and additional ones
  • Getting started and planning activities in WP1, 2, 5 and 6
  • Discuss management approach and duties
  • Discuss open access, GDPR and other issues related to data and ethics
