The second meeting of the FreeFoam project consortium, sponsored by the European Commission, took place recently in France and was hosted by one of the project partners Polymer Expert, which is an innovative research and development company specialising in the field of materials and polymers, at its laboratory facilities in Bordeaux.
The meeting was for the project partners to each report on their progress against the actions agreed at the first meeting held in May 2013 and to discuss and plan the next phase of activities to the end of July 2014.
Following the individual progress reports covering technical, dissemination and exploitation activities it was confirmed that the deliverables expected in the first six months of the project had been achieved. Considerable discussion on the wide aspects of the project and the next phase of development took place in respect of the hoped for benefits.
The launch of the FreeFoam website has taken place, and it explains more fully about the project, the challenges and the progress being made by the dedicated project partners.
The Polymer Expert team afforded all the members a detailed insight to the range of their research and development activities which clearly compliments the aims and objectives of project FreeFoam.
The next meeting will be held in Brastislava, Slovakia in May 2014.
