The next day, following the welcome note from the Circle coordinators, Zoltan Paksy, European Executive Director, facilitated a workshop. The group was split into three teams who discussed their expectations and suggestions for Mediterranean Circle meetings such as: walking dinners, opportunities for open discussions, how to attract more members to attend meetings and the possibilities of having a joint meeting with MENA Area.  

After the coffee break the teams started to discuss different aspects of collaboration among MGI members. They debated how to improve collaboration, the kinds of challenges members face when collaborating with fellow MGI members and what sorts of opportunities they see in the future.
