The General Assembly will:
Analyse performance indicators, activities balanced scorecards and all other relevant information provided by the Executive Committee
Take into account analysis on the evolution of the context in which the project is carried out, notably, scientific, legal, societal, economic aspects, etc.
Meetings of the General Assembly are held once a year, unless the interest of the project may require intermediate meetings.
