The Coordinators’ Day in Brussels on the 22nd of November 2019 brought together 148 MSCA-ITN projects and 234 participants (coordinators and project/financial managers), as well as representatives from National Contact Points and the European Commission.

The meeting was opened by the Deputy Director General of DG Education, Culture and Youth, Viviane Hoffmann, followed by the Director of the Research Executive Agency (REA), Marc Tachelet and the Head of REA’s Department A, Alessandra Luchetti.

The scope of the full day information day was to teach us how to organize and keep the projects running smoothly according to EC regulations and procedures of the ITN action. SECRET-ITN representatives were happy to attend and familiarise themselves with these rules, and also to meet the Project Officer in person and discuss details relevant to the implementation of the projects.

At the ITN 2019 Coordinators’ Day, SECRET-ITN representatives Dr Angelika Hausser (Program Coordinator) and Dr. Raluca Tamas (Program Manager) were among 324 participants, coming from 22 countries and including representatives from 5 National Contact Points and 127 organisations.
