SEEEPHI held its Kickoff meeting with all partners in attendance on Monday 8 Febuary and Friday 12 February. Originally planned for Brussels, the meeting was held via ZOOM due to COVID-19 conditions. ASPHER President John Middleton was on hand to welcome partners at the opening on both days. SEEEPHI's Project Officer from EACEA Luigi Saia attended on Friday giving a short address.
Partners discussed many critical items including the Partnership Agreement, make up of the Evaluation Committee, Project budget adjustments, COVID-19 considerations, and WP schedules and content.
Although we missed meeting up in person, it was great to see the dedication and excitement of all involved to begin this ambitious project!
