The general scope of the mid-term meeting was to provide an overview on the progress of project activities and to discuss the upcoming tasks and deliverables. The format of the meeting included presentations from work package leaders and from coordinators of demo regions. With just three months before the project’s half-time, the activities were conducted in a timely manner with all due deliverable reports published in time. A concentrated discussion took place around work package 2 (MAR feasibility mapping), work package 4 (MAR modelling) and work package 5 (local agreements).

During the second day, the project partner UPV organised a day-trip to visit the two case studies of the project: the Algar dam and the Belcaire pond. The trips enabled an open, constructive discussion between the project members and the local stakeholders and the collection of further information and understanding of local challenges of water resources management in Valencia, Spain.
