At the end of 2018, finishing the 2nd term of the project, all three project partners informed each other in a report about the results already reached. The venue was the acoustic laboratory of Budapest University of Technology and Economics, where the new vibration measurement device is placed.

The meeting was attended by the University’s colleagues from finance and two engineers as guests, helping the work of their respective fields as financial accounting and device development.

The following items were on the agenda:

1. Site visit to the acoustic laboratory of the University 

2. The lead partner’s presentation about the difficulties and finalization of the 2017 report

3. Tasks overtaken by INNOVATEXT Zrt.
