On May 31 - June 1, 2018, the CARISMAND project partners gathered in Bucharest, Romania, for the fifth consecutive operational meeting of the Consortium.

The meeting aimed to track the progress of the project, discuss issues arising from the work on the individual work packages for the past 6 months, and prepare the team for the upcoming milestones in the implementation of CARISMAND. The meeting proceeded with the preliminary results from the third cycle of public events (Third Stakeholder Assembly, Lisbon, 27-28 February 2018, Fifth Citizen Summit, Lisbon, 12 April 2018 and Sixth Citizen Summit, Utrecht, 14 May 2018), which took place during the first half of 2018.

The team also made progress in developing the key outcomes of the project: the CARISMAND Toolkit and the CARISMAND Cultural Map and discussed the details over the organization of the final conference (Florence, September 2018).

25 representatives of partner organizations in CARISMAND took part in the meeting.

The final operational meeting of the Consortium will take place in Florence in September 2018.
