Project meetings can be face-to-face or online. Face-to-face meetings are plenary sessions attended by representatives of the Beneficiaries, WP Leaders and major technical contributors. Plenary sessions are held approximately every four months. Online meetings are generally dedicated to single WPs or single Tasks within WPs and occur almost every week. When needed there are also online meetings for the Project Coordination Board (PCB).
