The MEDISS Partners Steering Committee (PSC) is crucial for the success of the project and for the decision making process. It provides support, guidance and oversight of MEDISS progress and state of play and ensure delivery of the project outputs and the achievement of project outcomes. 

In particular, MEDISS timeline established the organization of 4 PSC meetings hosted by each project partner: 

  • 1st  PSC in Italy, during the Kick Off Meeting
  • 2nd  PSC in Jordan, 2020
  • 3rd PSC in Palestine, 2021
  • 4th PSC in Tunisia, 2022

Due to COVID-19 Pandemic and as flights are suspended and borders are closed, some project activities become excessively difficult to carry out as initially planned, especially those that should be implemented abroad.

For this reason, the partners have decided to meet the project deadline and to organize the 2nd PSC virtually on the 9th of September, 10 am (Jerusalem Time).

The meeting will be coordinated by the MEDISS lead partner, Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group (PWEG).
