On 19 January, at the EASME offices in Brussels, the kick-off meeting for the BUILD UP III service contract took place; the contract concerns the support to the European portal on energy efficiency of buildings. Given that the contract implementation had begun right after its signature on 19 December, at the meeting already the first actions and results were presented, and the next steps were discussed. In respect to the portal content, which is coordinated by the Sympraxis Team, the first priority had been restoring the flow of news and other submissions by the BUILD UP user community. Consequently, the production and upload of original content began, with the support of experts from the INIVE network participating in the project. For the future, a set of new functions and content categories is under preparation.
