Dear Colleagues,

I hope you had all a smooth passing to the New Year, hoping for better times to come! The vaccination process in on the way, so many reasons to be confident about the future and also about our B4S project endeavor and results!

In the upcoming days we will wire the financial share as 80% of the project budget for each partner that already submitted the financial agreement. On this occasion, I remind you to send to me the attendance lists for the fist transnational meeting to close the formal side of the past event, signed by the participants in electronic form (thanks to those of you who already did it!). 

All good so far! In the next days we will plan an online meeting for O1&O2 objective (in reference to the curriculum design and course description), as to be carried out on videoconference platform, for the first week of February, Thursday on 4th, 12:00-13:00 EET (11:00-12:00 CET). I will prepare a meeting agenda by the end of this week and I will make it available for all of you. In this regard, I am kindly ask prof. Taner to prepare a model of a curriculum and syllabus to be send as reference to all the teams, as agreed in our previous online meeting.

In the same context, thinking about the dissemination activities planned for the project, we intend to set up an workshop on occasion of supporting the MBNA annual conference SeaConf on 21-22nd of May ( ). On this seminar, each team would be invited to present 1-2 papers, anticipating the O4 objectives timely - the articles should be published in our journal, that is well indexed and could be a good start in preparing our scientific papers portfolio (the publication date will be by the end of June so doable to be loaded on O4 results). We will talk more details about this subject on our next meeting on 4th of February.

This is it shortly for now. I am looking forward to get the residual documents from you, where the case, and to set up the meeting on 04th of February.

I remind you that this platform could be used by any of you in setting up team conferences, uploading documents, or for sending messages to all partners.

I wish you all the best and stay safe and healthy!

Kindest regards,
