An active period for project partners

Several deliverables in preparation
2018 is the year of diagnosis for the 6 case studies. In June, the Ploërmel seminar gave an update on the common orientations of the deliverables for the end of the year.

Thanks to this, each site can take stock of its initial situation and define the precise objectives for future PES contracts.
