The HoNESt Consortium meets at Universitad Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, for a two-day meeting (6/7 October 2016). Researchers will present and discuss the first round of findings from the empirical, historical research phase compiled in the country reports. These findings will be refined in the autumn.

The meeting has two purposes:

1) First, to put together and draw first comparative conclusions from the various histories. What are the commonalities and differences between national stories? What are the transnational connections? How can we take these findings further, towards more specific and in-depth research and publications.

2) Second, to further the interdisciplinary discussion: What are the additional information needs of the social science team? Which first observations and findings will be amenable for a first round of stakeholder engagement?

HoNEST Kick-Off Meeting

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.
