On 15th March 2018, the first TOOP review took place in Brussels. Three independent experts chosen by the European Commission assessed four Work Packages (WP1, WP2, WP3 and WP4) and their work delivered in the first twelve months of the project. The reviewers provided valuable feedback not only for the project coordinator, but also for the work package leaders. It created the opportunity to evaluate and discuss key topics, such as pilot design, architecture, impact assessment, sustainability issues and communication with key stakeholders.
During the meeting, reviewers elaborated on each Work Package outcomes and suggested how future actions could be improved. Their remarks enabled to define the scope for further activities and the main points of focus for the actions to come.
Reviewers underlined the progress of the project and encouraged participants to continue their efforts in the months to come.
