Transnational Meetings

The planned transnational meetings during the project are three and they are held face to face in each of the partner countries. They are related to the stages of development of the intellectual results of the project. The meetings have dual purpose:

  1. Project management and coordination:
  • preparation of a detailed work plan and timetable for the project activities;
  • discussion of the main activities and planned results;
  • allocation of tasks and setting deadlines for implementation;
  • coordination of work between partners;
  • control the process of project implementation (goals, deadlines, budget);
  • initiating corrective action, if necessary.
  1. Contribution to the project objectives and intellectual results of the project:
  • exchange of good practices in the training of target groups between partners;
  • each meeting has a role to play in delivering intellectual results.

According to the understanding of our consortium, the main factor for the quality results of the project is the joint work of the partners in their development. The implementation of the expertise, know-how and experience of all partners in the project aims to create innovative win-win solutions developed in collaboration with business. This is the reason why we devote half of the project meeting time to the actual content of project implementation activities where partners can exchange experiences, give suggestions and ideas, discuss and plan their input on the intellectual outcomes of the project at each stage of the project.
