The first day was dedicated to the progress of the project. There were presentations from all partners on the development of the tasks, the fulfilment of the first deliverables, and a fruitful discussion on the requirements envisaged in the next steps. Special attention was given especially on the technical requirements for the application of the sensors inside the bins in the two pilot cities, as well as the way to involve the citizens, and local stakeholders in the project.
The second day was about presenting the project and its deliverables to Ms Filipa Ferrao, Monitoring Expert of Life Projects. Ms Ferrao supported the project team with valuable information on the submission of the Inception Report, the output initial indicators, and other financial and management issues.
