Milestone 1 (M1) (Month 12): When 1-year seasonal sampling will be completed and first results will be available to be used for the construction of the model. M1-‘Biological data available for model validation’ corresponds to the completion of the deliverables: D1.1 ‘Report on sampling design, field samples collected, laboratory analysis and preliminary results’ and D2.1 ‘Report on coupled models construction’.
Milestone 2 (M2) (Month 16): When all modules of the fish models should be ready and coupled with the hydrodynamic-biogeochemical model, and inputs from WP1 to WP2, for model parameterization, calibration, defining initial conditions and skill assessment should have been available and being used. M2- ‘Full life cycle model ready for calibration’ corresponds to the completion of two key deliverables: D1.2 ‘Manuscript on energy allocation to growth & reproduction in anchovy and sardine’ and D2.2 ‘Manuscript on full life cycle models of anchovy and sardine’.
Milestone 3 (M3) (Month 18): When the model should have been tested and ready to implement and the scenarios are well-defined for final simulation runs of WP3. M3 – ‘Completion of model skill assessment’ corresponds to the completion of key deliverable D2.3 ‘Manuscript on model validation and initial model runs’.
Mini Symposium (S) (Month 24): To be held in Greece where the results of the project will be disseminated both to the scientific community and stakeholders
