The GIFT consortium met for the first time at the Kick Off Meeting of the project in Ljubljana on the 31st of January for two days. After a fun ice breaker organised by the coordinator, the whole team dove in the project topics in order to ensure the well implementation of the project. The consortium was also glad to welcome Miss Mariana Stantcheva, the GIFT Project Officer, representing the EC. Along with the specifics of the project, this meeting was also the occasion to discuss the general rules to be respected in H2020 during the project. But most of all, this was the opportunity for everyone to meet and get to know each other, which was very successfully done. Next meeting is planed in the marvelous region of Harstad, farther than the arctic circle !
