2nd Pilot projects meeting successful

on .

From 26-28 September the 2nd Activity 2 meeting took place in Arkö (sweden). 11 AnNa partners and Croatia and Norway participated.

The meeting (chaired by SE) approved the leading principles (some details will still be revisited till 5 October). This was felt as a major step forward by all participants. It was proposed to call the 33 leading principles Guidelines, as they guide the various countries developing their tender specifications for 2010/65/EU implementation. The data elements documents were also approved, some small modifications. 

The meeting identified some 42 pilot projects to be executed by the 14 AnNa partners. Some pilot projects will be executed nationally. Fortunatedly many pilots will also be developed in collaboration between the countries. The pilots that will be further developed in collaboration are:
