Dissemination and collaboration with sister project CityZen

The purpose of this task is to exploit possibilities of mutual benefit between MEGAPOLI and its sister project CityZen. Coordinator meetings will identify tasks where the two projects can collaborate efficiently to facilitate scientific progress, e.g. by exchange of data and methods, and to check consistency of the results obtained in the two projects prior to publication.
Coordinators of MEGAPOLI and CityZen (metno): Coordinators' meeting (4 to 6 months after start of the project period) to identify links between the consortium members and implement efficient collaboration. Organize one common project meeting of MEGAPOLI and CityZen (about halfway through the project period), and co-convene a session on megacities at an EGU meeting (towards the end of the project period), where results from MEGAPOLI and CityZen are presented, alongside with research from outside the two consortia.

MEGAPOLI will closely collaborate with and takes advantage of many other supplementing European, International and national projects, networks and programs. Some of them are listed in Table 2.6.
