TARGET Closing Conference
On September 13-14, 2011, the TARGET consortium held the project’s Closing Conference in Jerusalem, Israel. Together with policymakers from across Europe and representatives from the OECD, the results of the project were discussed and disseminated. The results (the toolkit) were received favorably and effective discussions as to future possibilities of using the toolkit on the ground were suggested and presented. Along with the Toolkit itself, the different case studies were also presented and the field tests were discussed. The workshop will be hosted by the Ministry Science and Technology of the State of Israel, the Coordinator of the TARGET Consortium.
Please find the the presentations that were held during these two fascinating days.
