The first day of the meeting was devoted to a review of work done over time, where project coordinator Prof. Daponte Pasquale presented the real situation and expressed issues that require immediate solutions. In general, the report of the Prof. Daponte became clear that the project is a behind schedule in connection with delay in delivery of laboratory equipment to Uzbekistan. However, during the meeting, all participants received the good news that the equipment is already in Uzbekistan and until the end of November will be delivered in partner-universities, established according to the requirements and the laboratory staff can participate in training sessions on using the equipment in real conditions. Moreover, parallel to the meeting in Karshi was held the training on the use of laboratory equipment in Tashkent, which clearly presented the training materials and videos.

The third day was dedicated to future planning of the project where the consortium has agreed that upon receipt of the second part of the funding by grantholders, it will be working to improve the academic skills of project staff in EU universities for 1 month for 5 people from each University, total 20 people. Moreover, there will be organized EU partners visits of internal monitoring to control the quality of education in the developed master's degrees, refresher courses and advanced courses on selected training courses.

The final day of the meeting was the discussion about possible future cooperation given the fact that the received laboratory equipment gives an opportunity to go Uzbek universities to be a leader in the region to conduct research in biomedical engineering and possibly Uzbekistan to become a hub for the development of high-tech medicine.
