The Kickoff meeting for the EGLE project successfully took place on 9th July 2014 in the Barreau de Bruxelles, and was attended by 40 people from across the European Union. New contributors joined Working Groups 1, 3, and 4, and we are very happy to welcome them to the project.
Initial presentations and an overview of the background of the project were made by Ms. Patricia Grandjean, Mr. Philippe Jacquemin, and Mr. Alain Nuée. EEEI President and EGLE Promoter Jean-Raymond Lemaire gave a short reminder of the
project’s budget policy. Two interpreters were present to translate the proceedings, and despite one or two glitches with our new equipment, this helped ensure understanding for all those present.
After a short lunch-break, members of each Working Group got together to work
on their appointed topics, and each Working Group defined the work to be done for the next meetings in September. The two members present for the Data Study Group, Beatriz Gil from Spain and Alice Marcotulli from Italy, worked on the Databank and made suggestions for how best to present and share documents. EGLE members can now find and share all documents concerning the EGLE project on the EEEI/EGLE Dropbox, for which they have received an invitation by email.
