The Kick-Off Meeting


A kick-off meeting was organised in Reykjavik Iceland in May 2012. At this meeting, the coordinator, Guðni A Jóhannesson, gave a short address where he welcomed the foreign guests and celebrated the start of the Geothermal ERA NET. 

The project set-up, objectives, time plan, and governance structure was reviewed as well as practical issues related to finances and reporting to the EC.  Dr. Erich Naegele the EC project at that time attended the meeting and gave an overview on „the Rules of the Game - Basic Principles of FP7 Grant Agreement”.  The latter part of the meeting was devoted to fruitful discussion on the work ahead and the objectives of the Work Packages.  WP leaders presented their views on the first steps ahead.  At the kick-off meeting, an activity plan for the first year was discussed and agreed on.

A major duty of the project management is the financial coordination of the project. The prepayment received by the EC was distributed among partners.
