On the 3rd-4th of May the consortium met for the third meeting of the NoCanTher Project consortium, the meeting was hosted by Biopraxis in Vitoria, Spain at the Alava Technology Park (Parque Tecnológico De Álava).
The meeting gave everyone a chance to meet up face-to-face and talk about the project’s progress over the past 6 months. All members of the consortium were represented and the first day started with a tour of the sterile production facilities of Biopraxis. This was one of the highlights of the meeting as it gave us all a chance to see where the medical device will finally be produced, providing a huge boost for everyone.
The day continued with Prof Álvaro Somoza (IMDEA Nanociencia) updating the team on the project and key events of the past months. The WP leaders then summarised the progress of each individual work package, and a healthy open discussion was carried out about the challenges over the next 6 months. We then had a chance to enjoy the hospitality of the Basque country with a dinner organised by Biopraxis where we had the chance to taste some local dishes –I’m sure everyone would agree that whoever hosts the next event has a lot to live up to!
As always the second day focused on the next 6 months and each work package summarised their plans for the next few months. We set some targets and deadlines which I’m sure will set the project well moving in to the next stages. The venue for the next meeting is yet to be confirmed but we have a few options which will be discussed in the coming weeks. The one thing for sure is we will have a lot to talk about regarding the progress of this exciting project.
