The recent meeting in Edinburgh (26-28 November) had a specific session organised with the stakeholders to develop a primary contact with them, introduce their Organisations to the WP Partners and collect their first views beneficial to the management of the project.
Such meeting has been the best opportunity to foster positive associations and interactions for the creation of a network able of keeping a uniqueness of the project but also to approaching innovation through a multi-expertise vision.

On 27 November a meeting of the stakeholders with the partners was entirely dedicated to the stakeholders’ introduction of their respective organisation and to the listing of the expectation that each one has for the wished outcomes of the project. Some outcomes have been clearly mentioned by many of them making such themes an agreed demand of the stakeholders. These, include:
