Open Consortium Kick-off Meeting
The Open Consortium Kick-off Meeting took place on March 17th 2012 at the Open Consortium offices in Barcelona.
A welcome introduction was offered by the coordinators, highlighting the importance of providing a comprehensive interdisciplinary systems biology based training to the fellows in the field of Reproductive Biology and Andrology, with the aim to acquire relevant fundamental knowledge and to develop novel clinical and industrial applications.
All partners presented their current scientific goals and interests in order to confirm or slightly modify the initially proposed ESR/ER projects and collaborative secondments.
The afternoon was dedicated to review topics such as rules and implementation, recruitment, finance and budget, management, reporting, committees, website and logo design.
A Networking Welcome Dinner was offered the night before and a Networking Wrap-up Dinner successfully brought the meeting to a close.
