The first day was devoted to make a state of art of the project and mainly to share the LCoP modules and experiences from second year of module implementations.

Before concluding the day, the CoP discuss about the organization of the international multiplier event that will take place in UK on January.
The third day was devoted to discuss evaluation and dissemination reports, fix budgeting issues, plan action on O5 and finally discuss about the state of art of data collection, analysis and results related to O4. The meeting ended up with plans for the next steps.
The last day was devoted to social events, the I SEE CoP explored the Icelandic landscape, thanks to the ospitality of our hosts who let the community knows about challenges and wonders of such a particular land.
The meeting represented an important moment for making a collective synthesis on the project, planning final actions as well as a chance for triggering good relationship for working together within the project.
