The last 29th of January 2014 Hi-Iberia hosted the SAMi2 Kick-Off meeting in its head offices in Madrid.

Here, the European Consortium which is led by Hi-Iberia in conjunction with the Madrid City Council police as end-user and CSSC (Italy) as expert in ethical and legal issues deployed the needed tools to get the project started.

Hi-Iberia opened the meeting, welcoming and presenting all partners involved. After these formalisms, a review of the main objectives, results and innovations of the project was carried out focusing on the role of CSSC as ethical-legal adviser.

Thereafter, a review of the activities to be carried out in the following 24 months took place. In this review, particular focus was on activities related to the coordination and dissemination of the project. Finally, in this point, administrative issues related to the Consortium Agreement and the Grant Agreement were also discussed.

To finish the meeting, a list of the action points to be followed in the next 6 months for ensuring the correct development of the activities within the established deadline was created.
