As a part of the introductory activity, the “kick-off meeting and the expert meeting 1” in Maribor (Slovenia), took place between March 1st and March 3rd, 2018. The managerial-coordinating group and the expert group met together. The managerial group and an expert group were combined and they both had the same agendas. Both groups prepared the necessary guidelines to start the project on all levels.
The programme of the kick-off meeting consisted of two phases:
1. The official opening of the project and the official appointment of a project manager and the project team. Declaration of project schedule was introduced, as well as project
financial schedule, and determination of responsibilities between individual persons;
