The third EUthyroid project meeting was held on 7 – 8 September 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia. All work package leaders had the opportunity to discuss progress made during the last 12 months of the project and outline their detailed plans for bringing the project to a successful conclusion.
This meeting fell at a crucial time as the EUthyroid project moves into its last 9 months and the focus lies not only on bringing the scientific work to a successful conclusion but also to ensuring that the projects outcomes are disseminated as widely, and with as much impact, as possible. A key part of this effort will be played by the many regional managers in the consortium and therefore considerable time and attention was dedicated to discussing the situation in the various countries and the strategies for addressing policy makers at a national level across Europe.
In light of the achievements of the project and the extensive infrastructure developed to ensure standardisation of future studies, another key topic of discussion was ways in which to ensure that the project continues in some form after the funding period is over.
