Heathrow Airport Limited - 2nd GA Meeting, 6-7 March 2019

2nd GA Meeting, 6-7 March 2019

Heathrow Airport Limited

The 2nd General Assembly Meeting of the ENABLEH2 Project was hosted by Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) on the 6th and 7th March 2019. Colleagues from HAL introduced the participants to Heathrow’s Carbon neutral growth roadmap and to Heathrow’s Centre of Excellence for Sustainability. This was followed by the work-package presentations during which partners gave an overview of their work progress over the last 6 months. The Meeting was concluded with break-out sessions which enabled detailed technical and project management discussions which further strengthened synergies and collaboration, both in individual work packages and across the project as a whole. These sessions also provided a roadmap for the upcoming activities in the project.
