On the 2nd of March 2016, the Project team from the Municipality of Mogila and the Macedonian Science Society was hosted by the project staff from the Municipality of Koufalia.
This was the second coordinative meeting between the project teams from both countries. The Project team members exchanged their information on realized activities, the Lead Partner, Municipality of Mogila informed the project team about the request for non- cost extension of the project implementation period, as well as the reasons for the same. Furthermore, they discussed the previous activities conducted by the partners from Macedonia, as well as the two visits from the Delegating Authority (one from the EU Delegation in Skopje and another from the JTS in Thessaloniki).
The partners from Greece pointed that they are still in a status quo , due to several local factors, but that they intend on appointing a consulting company that will manage their project activities because of lack of capacity among the municipal staff.
All of the partners agreed that there is a strong need of a more intense communication and coordination among all the partners, following by the unanimously accepted suggestion to form a joint management team. This team would consist of two representatives from each partner, and they will establish regular means of communication, exchanging information about ongoing activities, problems and risks etc.
After this decision, the meeting ended and all of the project expressed their expectation for fruitful cooperation and implementation of the project activities.
