On September 26th and 27th, 2022, the MOZART consortium attended the 4-month project meeting in Athens co-hosted by our partners National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and Creative Nano (Cnano). The partners had the opportunity to meet each other in person and to present the progress of their activities until now.
In the meeting, the 15 partners discussed technical aspects of the project related to the next steps towards the challenge of making plating a greener and safer process replacing hard chromium using the SSbD approach. The main effort now is concentrated in WP2: Specifications & Requirements based on SSbD strategy and WP8: Dissemination, Exploitation & Communication, reflected in relevant deliverables by month 4 and 6 of the project duration, respectively.
On the 1st day the meeting started at the NTUA, our project coordinator’s facilities. By the end of the first day, a citizen engagement event was organized by our partner Cnano, where the partners had the chance to socialize, commemorate the achievements until month 4, have a pleasant dinner and celebrate the birthday of the project’s coordinator.
On the 2nd day, the meeting continued at the Cnano premises, where all partners also visited Cnano facilities to get to know on site the plating lines that will be used to produce the novel nanocoatings. More productive discussions followed on how to pull consortium’s resources and expertise to achieve the project’s objectives.
The MOZART consortium ended the meeting looking forward for the next 38 months of the project!
