Mid-term review meeting

ITN project consortia shall organise a Mid-Term Review (MTR) meeting. The MTR assesses the fulfilment of all aspects (scientific, research training, management, etc.) described in Annex 1 of the Grant Agreement (GA).

The mid-term review meeting is "a contractual obligation and a fruitful dialogue". Download the guidelines here.

Objectives of the meeting:

  • Meet with the project team.
  • Update on the project progress.
  • Discuss any questions, concerns, difficulties.
  • Find solutions.

It is not just a scientific evaluation, but a unique opportunity to exchange views: a valuable source of feedback to both the consortium and the Research Executive Agency (REA).

INFRASTAR MTR is scheduled for Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 June 2018 at Aalborg University during the third training week.
