The POLYPHEM Final project meeting and infoday was organised on the 5th and 6th of July 2022 by PROMES CNRS at the Centrale Solaire Thémis, in Targasonne.

On Tuesday, 5 July, the Final General Assembly gave us the occasion to meet again to prepare for the end of the project, the road ahead towards the finalization of the last deliverables, the final report, and the preparation of the project review with the European Commission in Fall 2022.

On Wednesday, 6 July, the Final Infoday was an amazing opportunity to present and explain the main results of the project. On this occasion, partners delivered interesting presentations together with an enriching panel discussion. Finally, we wrapped it with a visit of the facilities.
