PERSEUS organised its first training activity in June 2012. This initial training activity took place from 4-8 June 2012, in collaboration with the ‘Maria Tsakos’ Foundation, on the island of Chios, Greece, under the auspices of the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT) of Greece. GSRT is the Coordinator (until June 2012) for the Working Group on Cooperation in Science and Technology in the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC). The training course in Chios was the first part of two interdependent courses (two stages/modules) in order to take full advantage of the progress of PERSEUS and to maximize the active participation and involvement of participants to their full benefit. 

The course aimed to contribute to establishing common understanding and joint approaches to ensure coherence and consistency throughout the Black Sea countries, in order to facilitate the basin-wide promotion of the MSFD principles and objectives.
