Now, when the 2013 MedOpen Advanced session is in its full swing, great news arrived from a group of three MedOpen previous session participants: last year, they decided to come together to work out their Final Essay, which was about the conversion and sustainable development of a site that was used as a former U.S. base in Greece. They did a very good job and then decided to prepare a paper out of the Final Essay and submit it to the next MEDCOAST conference, which was held recently in Turkey. The paper has been accepted; they went to the conference and presented it.
This is an excellent example of the use of a Final Essay prepared during the MedOpen, and then developed further as an added-value product beyond the MedOpen course, as well as another confirmation of the relevance of this PAP/RAC initiative. This experience will be used as a benchmark in the future MedOpen activities.
