Midterm report accepted

We are pleased to report that the midterm scientific report of our project was accepted recently. The overall impression of our external reviewer was that "In summary, the early stages of the project are in place and the collaborations are solid and growing which promises well for the next period...."

The consortium paid attention to the recommendations of the reviewer and amended the Description of Work to accommodate the suggested changes. These were also discussed in person by the SusFoFlex partners at the recent technical meeting in Porto, Portugal. We believe that the project is on the right track and that significant progress will be made in the third project year.
