First in-person Integration week in Greece

[Integration Week]

👷 Our first in-person Integration week was held at the Perama port in Athens, Greece, in May 2022.

During this integration week, partners were finally able to work together on site. Thanks to our partners Glafcos Marine, Danaos and Starbulk, a mock-up was built in the spring and finished just in time for our integration week. 

Monday, a meeting was organised in the offices of Danaos to talk about the progress of the project, to discuss the objectives of the week but also safety measures while we are working on a port.

All week, the partners focused on testing their different equipment. After 2 years without seeing each other and only laboratory tests, on-site tests were more than welcome 🛠️.

The objectives and tasks for the week were high, but the partners managed to complete them. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grand agreement No 871260.
