II Project Management Board and Steering Committee Meeting in Bari

July 12/13th 2012, at the Oriente Hotel in Bari: the Lead Beneficiary Puglia Region - Mediterranean Department is now going to hold a second Project Management Board and Steering Committee Meeting – Strategic Project ALTERENERGY (Energy sustainability for Adriatic small communities).

This meeting is meant as a focal one, for pointing out the actual weaknesses and problems met by the partners so far, and jointly agree and plan future activities. In fact, a greater detail of project tasks, activities and results is going to be provided, with reference to all WPs. This details will help partners – already asking for a budget change in order to adapt it to their actual needs – to do it in the best way, bearing in mind the main objectives they are expected to fulfill from now on.

After the meeting, partners will have got all necessary knowledge tools for planning their own project budget in an operational way, either in terms of WPs, Actions, expenditure forecasts, hopefully till the project finalization. Missing this meeting might mean losing the chance to go through ALTERENERGY project, planning its development, learning about its expected deliverables/outputs, and its capitalization potential and Adriatic impact on small communities.

ALTERENERGY Strategic Project was approved for funding in April 2011, during the CBC IPA Adriatic JMC meeting held in Venice. The operational start up of it was fixed in September 2011. A first partnership meeting was held in Bari in December 2011, aimed to provide all partners with the procedural tools for the correct project start up and implementation (administrative and financial management, periodical project reporting, project main contents, communication obligations at EU level). Following that meeting, WP1 – Project  Management, WP2 - Communication and Information and WP3 - Integrated Energy Management Models were started up, and all partners have been working for setting up management and technical teams and internal administrative procedures. Under the guidance of the LB Puglia Region – Mediterranean Department and their regional Agency ARTI, WP3 has been implemented, too, and it is now well on going (a new deadline for WP3 was fixed at December 2012).

According to the approved Application Form, and the set of performance indicators here foreseen, the project Steering Committee and the Project management Board have to meet twice a year (about every 6 months) for reporting on the state of the art and fix the project key implementation targets for the next future.
