Complete data input methodology was presented and described. An online demonstration of information and data input and uploads of graphics files into the system was presented, during which the core functionalities of the system were discussed.
The financial implementation of the project and the achieved results until the moment were presented and discussed at the consortium meeting too. The parameters of the project, the deadlines, the minimum and maximum scope of its final results, the rules for reporting of costs and other issues concerning the procedures for presenting the collected information and reporting the activities were also discussed.
A representative of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) also took part in the meeting and thus obtained a first-hand information about the current project implementation results, provided answers to certain technical questions and gave important explanations and valuable remarks regarding the efficient utilization of the approved funds.
The possibilities for widening the geographic scope of key project results were also discussed, especially the options for including samples from countries outside the consortium but still within the original financial resources, with a corresponding increase of the duration of the project in case of such widening. It was agreed that the Bulgarian side as a coordinator will explore the possibilities for such an extension of the project results, with a request for an increase of the project duration by no more than six months if necessary, and will notify the partners in the consortium about the final result.
