Partners come together for the first General Assembly
Reaching the sixth project month, partners from the PRESERVE consortium (once more, in an online format) met to discuss the achievements of this first part of the project.
PRESERVE aims at reducing the amount of plastic and damaging materials by choosing more sustainable alternatives, such as bio-based plastics or cardboard, that will also help us simplify recovering and recycling of food packaging.
After the first 6 months of the project, the partners came together to present the technical progress made in material selection and process development and discuss the following steps to effectively use the remaining 42 more project months to develop ten application-oriented demonstrators.
During the meeting, all the partners had the opportunity to present the work performed in the different Work Packages. Specific attention has been devoted to the deviation and risk assessment, in order to identify the difficulties that can lead to a delay in the achievement of results.
"The project is running in a very good pace with a great level of communication and collaboration among the partners", states Dr. Aldo Ramirez, PRESERVE project coordinator. "From the technical point of view the activities are being settle and they are already on the starting phase. Finally, a considerable advance is expected to be reported in the next meeting M12".
The next General Assembly is expected to be held next December 2021.
PRESERVE has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952983.
