DiStruc

The Mid-term review (MTR) meeting assesses the fulfilment of all aspects (scientific, research training, management, etc.) described in Annex 1- Description of the Action of the Grant Agreement. Particular attention is paid to the training activities and networking aspects including activities across different sectors. As such, the review is not just a scientific evaluation of the Network but it should be understood as a constructive dialogue between the network participants and the Research Executive Agency (REA) project officer and is a valuable source of feedback to both the consortium and the REA. 

The DiStruc MTR meeting will be held at the Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal (CRPP), University of Bordeaux, Pessac on Tuesday 15 November 2015. The draft agenda of the day can be found below.
