In page 3 of the Technical News issue 100 (January 2017) by Arup Ireland, it is possible find an article about TRUSS mid-term review at Arup. The article is written by Dr. Salam Al-Sabah, who reports on the mid-term review meeting held in Arup’s Dublin Office over two days at the beginning of December 2016. The meeting was attended by the Project Officer and External Assessor from the Commission, and more than 30 participants from the consortium.
