The HR-Recycler partners were hosted in Barcelona, Spain by partner Institute for BioEngineering of Catalonia (IBEC) for their 3rd plenary meeting. Among the many decisions that had to be made, the most important of them related to the following topics:
Interecycling – Sociedade de Reciclagem, S.A. was the first end user to host one of the consortium’s meetings. All partners gathered at Santiago de Besteiros and discussed the project’s progress. Initial discussions about the robotic functionalities, use cases and pilots took place which lead to the realization of the difficult road ahead. The consortium also came to some tentative agreements regarding the use case scenarios and the devices that each end user will be tasked with handling during the pilots.
Having been awarded a grant of €6,986,573 from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 fund, the 13 partners involved met in Thessaloniki for a kick-off meeting in December 2018.
The meeting was a chance for all the partners to meet face-to-face for the first time, to learn about what each other does, to go over the overall plan for the HR-Recycler project, and to discuss the next steps that need to be taken. Each partner gave a presentation to the rest of the consortium to explain their own aims, plans and expected outcomes for the project.
All of the partners left with a clear sense of the road ahead, and the work they need to focus on over the next few months.
