The Kick-off meeting for PALE-Blu was held at the Centre for Virus Research in Glasgow and was well attended by EU representatives and most of the partners (apart from Tunisian colleagues who had problems with visas).

The meeting was structured as a series of talks to include input and views from all partners and the EU commission, as well as information concerning finance from the coordinating partner (Geoge Rose – Partner 1).

The meeting agenda is presented below along with the abstracts that are available for individual talks. Links to the slide presentations from each speaker will also be made available to project partners.

On the second day the afternoon session was devoted to round-table discussions concerning the specific objectives. Overall it was a very successful and helpful meeting and we hope for real progress towards objectives and milestones in the coming years.
