The purpose of this task was linked to possibilities of mutual benefits between the EU FP7 projects MEGAPOLI and CityZen. At the beginning, after the joint Telephone Conference (Jan 2009) web pages with joint activities of the two projects were established.
During 2008-2011, the special sessions on Megacities and joint splinter meetings (including also the MILAGRO project) were organized at the European Geosciences Union Annual General Assemblies - EGU-2009 (21 Apr 2009), EGU-2010 (4 May 2010) and EGU-2011 (5 Apr 2011) in Vienna, Austria, and an End-User Workshop was jointly organized in Geneva, Switzerland (WMO, Feb 2010). The two projects have made joint contributions to the WMO/IGAC assessment on megacities. ECPL has also participated in the Final MEGAPOLI Symposium (26-28 Sep 2011; Paris, France) and presented their results.
