Update of the program in Greece
Ten organizations are currently involved actively in the voluntary programme and most end-users are in the process of data collection. CRES has also conducted relevance and quality checks for the organizations that have provided data and supported them through constant communication.
In October 2017, CRES communicated with the organisations and asked the more advanced about their availability for an onsite visit. Moreover, CRES communicated and provided feedback to the organisations that participated in the project meeting in Athens. Additionally, CRES checked in detail, processed and provided detailed comments to the Municipality of Ilioupoli regarding their data. Moreover, CRES made a first preliminary check and provided comments on the data provided by the Municipality of Petroupoli.
In November 2017, CRES contacted all the organisations that have not provided any significant impact thus far and reminded them the two month deadline until the end of the data collection process in accordance with the decided time schedule during the training sessions.
Until now, CRES made frequent communications with the active organisations in order to check their availability for an onsite visit, assess their progress on the programme and provide help and feedback when required. Additionally, there was communication with the organisations that have not been active in order to check their willingness to participate in the project.
CRES has already visited 5 organizations; while three more meetings have been scheduled for the following months (see above).
Overall, most of the organisations remain rather active and interested in the project.
