New Triennium 2019-2021
Virtual meetings 2020 and 2021
The period since March 2020 was a new experience for Task 40. Funny rooms (in the camper!), interesting looks and exciting interjections cheered up the atmosphere in the now virtual meetings. As we have been using this type of communication for several years, this was not entirely innovative for the group. However, we had to struggle with permanent solutions for cross-continental time slots and rare personal meetings. Nevertheless, Task 40 met a total of 8 times in 2020, including 2 two-day meetings. In 2021 we met a total of 9 times, plus some members were in additional meetings to prepare the proposal for a new Intertask project (new triennium 2022-2024). The Lead Team participated in 2 virtual ExCo meetings over several days. This was more meetings than in 2019!

The second physical meeting of the task members was held in Leipzig at the DBFZ. It was a successful exchange, an update of the projects and further networking activities with colleagues from the DBFZ and a Japanese delegation. At the end of the meeting a visit of a waste wood biomass power plant was organized.

Stockholm, Sweden 27 February -1 March 2019
The kick-off meeting, the first meeting in the new triennium, took place in Stockholm, organised by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). Since many projects will be worked on in the future as so-called intertask projects in joint working groups consisting of members of different tasks, Tasks 40 and the newly founded Tasks 44 and 45 met together in Stockholm.
The first steps were discussed, time and work plans were established.
And we enjoyed tasty Swedish delicacies while doing so……
