Final Review Meeting Held for FP7 PRECIOUS Project

The FP7 PRECIOUS Project held its final review meeting at the European Commission (EC) premises in Brussels, Belgium, on Monday 19th, December, 2016. The review was attended by the EC Project Officer, three external reviewers and representatives from all the eight partners of the PRECIOUS consortium. During the morning session of the review meeting, the work package (WP) leaders presented highlights of the achievements of different WPs for the third and final year of the project.

 

In the afternoon session, there was an opportunity to witness the demo of the current version of the PRECIOUS app and receive reports from the user trials held in four different countries (Finland, France, Spain and UK), as well as, obtain insights from the exciting PRECIOUS hackathon held in Austria in September 2016. The afternoon session also allowed for some review on ongoing and planned the post-project exploitation activities.

 

Whilst the PRECIOUS project officially ended on 31st October 2016, there remains a strong legacy resulting from the project results. The news updates and collaborations on these developments will be maintained via all the PRECIOUS online dissemination channels.
