Final CHANDA Meeting

Monday, April 16, 2018 - 09:00 to Wednesday, April 18, 2018 - 11:00
CIEMAT headquarters in “Avenida Complutense, 40. 28040 Madrid”

The Final General meeting  corresponded to April 16 and 17 and the final Governing Board meeting corresponding to April 18.

The meeting took place at the CIEMAT headquarters in “Avenida Complutense, 40. 28040 Madrid”.

The meeting was dedicated to review the main scientific and technical achievements, to identify the main conclusions from the project for the future, to review the administrative situation and the latest actions needed to properly close the project and to prepare the final technical and financial reports to the EC.

As in some previous occasions, JEFF has organized one their meetings as a side event to the CHANDA meeting.

The JEFF meeting took place from April 18th 9:00AM to April 20th 14:00AM. The JEFF meeting agenda can be obtained from NEA.
