On the 16th January 2017, the external monitor of Neemo agency, Cristina Rabozzi, assigned by the European Commission to follow up LIFE projects, attended the first monitoring meeting with Life Biopol partners in Santa Croce sull’Arno (PI). The main issues and updates of Life Biopol project were showed and the most important aspects were discussed during the visit. There was a technical review of the activities carried out in every action, particularly regarding B.1 and B.2 phases. Furthermore, a financial review of incurred costs and the budget previsions of the project was undertaken. The monitoring visit was very fruitful and allowed to establish a good collaboration between the project beneficiaries, the monitoring team and European Commission.
