From October 25th to 27th, MPAT had its sixth and final full project meeting.
With the EU funded period of MPAT coming to a close, the meeting was primarily
devoted to two topics – the documentation of the activities and results of the
projects in the remaining deliverables and the planning and preparation of the
MPAT workshop in December 2017 at the IRT premises in München.
This was presumably the last time the full MPAT group met in this configuration,
so after working almost two years together, it was a bit of a bittersweet event.
While partners will certainly continue to work together on MPAT and other activities
in the future and some of the people present will gather again for the workshop
and also for the final review meeting, this Lancaster meeting provided a last
chance for face-to-face activities and rounding off the last rough edges of
the project in intense discussions, activities and planing for the next months..
One the second project meeting, back in March 2016 in Saariselkä, Finland,
we used a drone to take a kind of “group picture”. So it seemed appropriate
to do a “drone version” of the last project meeting group picture as well.
