MOBILISE Alignment workshop – 16 Nov Bratislava

Download the report of the workshop here

Within this COST action, a MOBILISE Alignment Workshop is organised to promote alignment of the DiSSCo-linked projects at the work level. This refers to those projects that contribute to the preparation and construction of DiSSCo, under a unified programme. The coordinators of these projects already participate in the SAP (Strategic Alignment of Projects) group of DiSSCo. However, this meeting will take these matters to the next level in exploring the alignment opportunities on the level of work packages in projects and working groups within CETAF

The goal of the MOBILISE Alignment Workshop will be to plan on how:

  1. Tasks in WPs and WGs can be tweaked or adjusted to ensure better alignment with relevant activities in other projects or groups;
  2. Adapt activities within tasks for the projects that are about to start (incl. SYNTHESYS+ and DiSSCo Prepare); and  
  3. Tasks in the MOBILISE Action for the upcoming year(s) can act as a connecting thread that enables investments in the other projects to maximise their impact.
