EMINENT partners organised an online Project Meeting on Friday 21st January 2021. Colleagues in Haiti and Europe Union reunited after the Christmas vacations via videoconferencing to formulate a feasible workplan to catch-up delays of project implementation.

Along these lines, partners welcomed the good news about the official approval by the EACEA to extend the period for the implementation of the EMINENT project up to April 2022. This will become a great opportunity for the project to compensate the disruption generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and recovered action.
