In - a surprisingly warm and sunny - Manchester, the partners of the REFORM project met to discuss the developments of the project over the last months and to define their activities and objectives for the upcoming period.

As the first phase of the project will conclude in December 2018 with the adoption of the four regional Action Plans, a large part of the meeting was dedicated to the definition of the format and content of the Action Plans. These documents will serve as a basis for the implementation of actions in the four REFORM regions in 2019 and 2020.

The next meeting of partners, in December, will be the opportunity to have a look back on the first period and to kick-start the second phase of the project.
