University of Genoa DISTAV (Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra, dell’Ambiente e della Vita) in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy hosted the first annual IDREEM Project Meeting on October 8-10 2013. Partners came from all over Europe to attend the three-day meeting to discuss the first results of the IMTA projects in various sites. Workshops were also held regarding environmental data collection and data flow between closely-related work packages. These workshops are essential to obtaining accurate results for the project.
Two members of the Project Advisory Board were present to observe and contribute useful insights regarding the project. Shawn M. Robinson of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Max Troell of The Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics in Sweden had an interactive session with the partners in order to give their suggestions about proceeding to the next stages of the project.
