Hybrid Transnational Project Meeting in Portugal

The latest hybrid Transnational Project Meeting (TPM) was held in Portugal, Cascais on 30 – 31 March 2022. The host organization was Portugal partner WEOPLE which replaced a TPM that was supposed to take place last year in England but had to be canceled due to the pandemic.
Almost all project partners were present personally except a partner from Greece that participated online on both days.

After the welcoming from WEOPLE, a warm-up activity was organized, which required participants to work together. Following, presentations of the online self-assessment toolkit commenced. Along with the presentation of the newly implemented features, additional remarks had been gathered by the partnership for the improvement of the platform. During the second meeting session, the discussions shifted towards the external testing and the multiplier events led by Slovak partner SPK, along with the progress of IO3. The English materials will be compiled by mid-April, and as soon as a deliverable is completed, a coordinating partner from Hungary – TREBAG will issue them to the partners for translations. Following, the agenda proceeded with the discussion on the offline interactive training kit led by WEOPLE. The day concluded with a short presentation from Trebag about the IO3 deliverables, to highlight the important factors, as well as brief information from Cyprus partner DEKAPLUS reminding the partners about the half-year evaluation.
The aim of the second day of the project meeting was to discuss the dissemination and project management-related topics. The project partner responsible for dissemination, SPK, has prepared a proposal of best practices for promotion purposes. This led to a common discussion, together with awareness-raising topics on the project deliverables, including the offline card game as well. The final project presentation summarised the project management-related tasks. The last meeting date is targeted at the end of August.  Agenda_Cascais
