The aim has been to meet scientific and finance staff of all partners in the ForeStClim member countries and discuss aspects of finance and progress reporting.

For the partners it has been the chance to discuss with ForeStClim Finance Manager Ms. Andrea Ball the various problems encountered during finance reporting.

For the Lead Partner is was an opportunity to learn about current activities of all partners visited, as well as pass on the feedback of the INTERREG Joint Technical Secretariat (JTS) in Lille to our past payment claims and progress reports.
