Ecodek were proud to welcome EU partners for Gelclad General Meeting
Ecodek were proud to host the latest Gelclad General Meeting.
The meeting was attended by all our GelcladProject partners, who travelled from across Europe including Portugal, Spain, Germany, Slovenia and within the UK, for a general update of the Gelclad project.
We have posted news items and blogs in the past about our involvement with this exciting project, but as a brief recap Gelclad is part of the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness. You can find more about the project in our previous blogs here.
The General Meeting, held last week, involved 20 delegates and the general perception during the meeting is that the project is progressing according to plan.
During the meeting each partner had the opportunity to present their latest achievements to the rest of the conference delegates and put their opinions forward in order to decide what were the next steps the consortium needed for the project to continue according to plan.
After a very successful meeting, all partners were invited to visit our production plant in Wrexham the following day, where they could appreciate the work involved in the manufacture of our wood polymer composite products.
A tour through our manufacturing equipment was followed by a visit to the lab, where extensive tests carried out were explained to ensure our raw material comply with our stringent requirements, to ensure our products are manufactured to the highest quality.
It was a great experience to host our project partners here on home turf, and we look forward to working together to bring the project to a successful conclusion.
