The fourth EUthyroid project meeting was held on 17th April 2018 in Krakow, Poland. This meeting took place in Krakow to coincide with the meeting taking place on the following day (Wednesday 18th April) to present the Krakow Declaration on Iodine.
With only 2 months remaining until the official end of the EUthyroid project on 31st May 2018, this meeting was perfectly timed to address the key themes of: successful completion of all project objectives, dissemination of EUthyroid outcomes, official reporting and opportunities for the continuation of EUthyroid beyond the end of the project.
This meeting provided all work package leaders with the opportunity to discuss progress made in the 6 months that have elapsed the previous project meeting in Belgrade and to outline their detailed plans for bringing the project to a successful conclusion. Regional managers also took the chance to present their activities and plans for the future.
The Krakow Declaration on Iodine was heavily promoted by many partners through distribution of press releases and endorsement of the declaration website through their networks. Activities such as these, by the many regional managers in the consortium were discussed alongside strategies for addressing policy makers at a national level across Europe to achieve as much impact as possible.
