With 40 Person Months (PMs) planned for August and many more scheduled for autumn, the staff exchanges promoted in Phoenix project will hit 111 PMs by the end of 2018. The numbers were confirmed during the Phoenix Meeting held in Lisbon, Portugal, on 13 July 2018.
Due to the withdrawal of INP Grenoble from the Project, which had arranged 12 PMs, the consortium agreed to redistribute their quota amongst the National Laboratory of Energy and Geology (LNEG) and the University of Zagreb (UNIZAG). As a result, LNEG agreed to receive two more Researcher Month, for 28 PMs, while the University of Zagreb divided the 10 additional Research Month received, amongst the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (4 Researcher Month), and the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology (6 Researcher Month), reaching in total 52 PMs.
The Consortium is committed to reaching 306 PM total by the end of the project. During the next Phoenix Meetings in Brussels, on 14 November, project partners will also discuss rearranging PM among Consortium members as needed.
