The first meeting with all project partners of the EUSBSR flagship project From Gaps to Caps took place in the last week of March in Iceland, Reykjavik.

The two days spent in Iceland’s stunning winter surroundings were dedicated to setting the tone for the two year project. All task leaders and their respective teams presented their workplans and working methods. Gudmundur Arni Stefansson, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iceland and CBSS CSO Delegate to Iceland, opened the meeting, followed by introductory words by Juris Targonskas, representing the Project Lead Partner, Fire and Rescue Department of Lithuania. The next project meeting will take place in Riga in May.
