GEN-I and GEN-I Sonce with other consortium partners of the NEWCOMERS project share a common vision at the kick-off meeting in Ljubljana.

The NEWCOMERS kick-off meeting took place in Ljubljana last week. During the meeting, whose proud partners are also GEN-I and GEN-I Sonce, all 8 consortium partners from 6 EU countries (NL, UK, SE, SI, IT, DE) engaged in discussions on various work packages and related tasks of the project, with the aim of creating a common understanding of the work to be done in each work package, as well as the goals to be achieved in the project. The kick-off meeting was also dedicated to issues around communication, feasibilities of dissemination and exploitation of the project. By launching the project's website ( and establishing social media channels, the first results of the project were successfully implemented.

The consortium partners left the kick-off meeting with a joint vision for the project, a clear agenda for their next steps and heaps of enthusiasm about the project and contributions each of us can make to the green transition and decarbonisation of Europe.
