ECIM P2 Review Meeting a Success
On 9 December 2015 ECIM partners gathered in Brussels to present project achievements of the penultimate period to the reviewers. All work package leaders and pilot representatives had an allocated time slot during which they presented the results of their work carried out between January and September 2015. After the last presentation the reviewers retreated for deliberation. When they returned they announced their conclusions which were overwhelmingly positive. The reviewers were impressed by the overall achievements of the consortium and noted high quality of the deliverables submitted in the previous period. Where they said they would like to see more progress in the coming months is the promotion of ECIM to relevant stakeholders by all partners through all available means; the refinement of a business model and go-to-market-strategy and the achievement of all targets, especially KPIs, specified in the Description of Work. Armed with these recommendations and positive feedback the consortium will take a series of steps to ensure that ECIM not only passes the final review with flying colours but also continues to remain impactful in pilot cities and beyond long after it has finished.
