The kick-off meeting of LION project (Local Alliance for INtegration) was successfully completed in Athens, Greece on 22 January 2018. The meeting took place at the National School of Public Health, with the presence of the Project Coordinator and host, Dr. George Koulierakis, along with the WP leaders and their delegations.

After a welcome note by Dr. George Koulierakis, LION’s partners introduced themselves and had a thorough discussion regarding the activities of the project. The aim of the meeting was for all WP leaders to present their work, scope and objective of each WP micro-activity, including the outputs and deliverables. In addition, the meeting focused upon the coordination tools to be used, financial issues, and the establishment of the Scientific Committee.

The next LION meeting will be scheduled in a three-month period, where progress and milestones achieved will be reviewed.
