Contribution To The Tempus IRIS Project
WUT is responsible for WP 5: Pilot IRO activities, which theoretically starts in Month 16 of project realization. Its schedule highly depends on progress of preceding WPs, especially of WP2 and WP4. That is why WUT's team is actively participating in some workshops and meetings organized within those two WPs. In parallel to that all the preparations for hot start of WP5 are on the way.
Independently of the above, WUT's team is trying to help in organization of other project activities. Our approach to internationalization process has been presented during Kick-off Meeting. We assisted in organizing the 2nd Consortium Meeting in Berlin. It was also agreed with the Project Manager that 3rd IRO Workshop (WP4) as well as 3rd Consortium Meeting will take place at WUT in Warsaw. Some networking activities are planned on occassion of those events.
