Unfortunately, the weather conditions do not allow to leave for the beaches and coasts of Lagos. However, this time is used to give the floor to each partner for a short presentation of the work done in his team. We also have time to jointly develop a meeting evaluation document. This presentation of the status of the project in each team and the use of this evaluation document now appear to be necessary at each of the next meetings. We thank the Mayor of Faro and the Algarve Tourist Office for their support, as well as Mrs. Marisa Damas, for her availability and contribution to this project. Our thanks also go to the entire local team for its valuable contribution to these project activities which have had a very favorable impact on the European participants coming to Faro from Italy, Romania, Spain and France.

Paula Pereira et Rosaria Prospero, project coordinators in Faro.
