The purpose of these monthly meetings is to ensure that all involved parties are up to date and informed of the progress of the project and of the transfer of the two organizations to their new premises. During a meeting held in the presence of the Prime Minister and the relevant Ministers, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, through its President Mr. Andreas Dracopoulos informed the NLG and the GNO of its intention to support the two organizations in their programming while they prepare for their transition to the SNFCC. The Foundation is solely responsible for the study, design, construction and outfitting of the SNFCC.
In addition the Foundation announced its intention to provide a grant of 5 million euros to each organization to support their programming needs and transition to the SNFCC. The SNF is expecting specific proposals from the two organizations before evaluating them and proceeding with the grants.
