Network Meeting November 2015

The 4th meeting of the ATBEST consortium took place in Ireland in early November 2015. 

In addition to the progress meeting in Queen's University Belfast, where each of the fellows gave updates on their research, associate partner Cré also hosted a disemination event where Experienced Researcher Francesco Ometto from Scandinavian Biogas Fuels gave an overview of his research.
