MODALES consortium partners met for the first time after the project kick-off in September in Toulouse, France on 29 and 30 January 2020. The meeting was kindly hosted by Cerema and it took place on a nice Peniche in the Toulouse’s famous Canal du Midi. The MODALES partners were welcomed by the General Assembly host, Quentin Gautier, Cerema Toulouse agency deputy director, who introduced the institution and its history in Toulouse and the region.

The partners discussed the status of the first deliverable while the Work Package leaders presented each WP and the next steps. Special attention was given to the Steering Committee nomination. The Steering Committee will be a high-level management body for advice and general management.  The partners agreed on the next General Assembly dates.
