The HoNEST project kick-off meeting took place in the venue of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Brussels, Belgium, on 16 of September 2015.
This was the first time that the entire consortium - 24 organizations from fifteen different countries - gathered in one place, being the opportunity for all partners to get to know each other better and present their ideas and work plans.
Work Package leaders presented the activities to be implemented, receiving inputs and feedback from the other partners. The HoNEST approach strategies, both scientific and social, were discussed and agreed upon.
The HoNEST kick-off meeting allowed for the exchange of knowledge and experiences, share of the individual expectations towards the project, and to strengthen cooperation and build a strong team spirit.
