“A very good start for the project”
Participants from Sweden, France and the Netherlands took part in the kick-off meeting for the project United-Grid on 24 November 2017.
The meeting was held in Gothenburg, Sweden, and gave all the project partners an opportunity to get to know each other better and to start discussions on how to arrange and optimize the collaborative efforts and cross work packages.
– I am happy to see that all partners have been ready with their work so far. I look forward to continuing our collaboration, says the project coordinator Tuan Le.
– I think this was a very good start for the project. We now share the same picture about what lies in front of us.
