The kick off meeting of the FANFAR project took place in Norrköping, Sweden on 17-19 January 2018. All partners joined over 3 days to discuss about the project. An overview of the project was presented on the first day, followed by a remote presentation by the project European Commission officer. Presentations were given by each partner on their institutions and also on the work package they are leading. Beside presentations, a significant portion of the meeting was dedicated to discussion in small groups. This first meeting allowed the partners to strategise and plan the work of the first year of the project.
