The sCO2-HeRo partners met for their first half-year project meeting in Řež, Czech Republic. It was hosted by NRI. The partners discussed intensively the very first settings and results and planned the next steps of their joint work. In addition the partners visited the CO2 experimental loop SUSEN (SUStainable Energy), which is located at NRI in Řež.
The project consortium met in September 2015 for the first meeting. The project sCO2-HeRo brought together 15 scientists and engineers from six partners. Over the course of three days, the trans-disciplinary team discussed the work plan of the sCO2-HeRo project for the next three years.
In several sessions, the tasks and work packages as well as the overall management and dissemination activities will be discussed in detail.
