3rd Transnational Partners Meeting in Pau, France

3rd Transnational Partners Meeting in Pau, France

Despite the numerous online meetings that we organize with NEUEYT partners, the feeling of physical meetings with colleagues and collaborators with whom you develop and create something truly special and unique for the youth of Europe cannot be compared, the positive atmosphere that can only be achieved with physical presence and effectiveness and the productivity of the participants happened from 15-16 November.

Last week, the third transnational partner meeting was held in Pau, France, hosted by the partners from Pistes Solidaries who welcomed us in their offices, and organized everything  all well. We are glad that representatives from all partner organizations attended the meeting Glocal Factory, E-Trikala, Poraka Nova, Foris, Agderand Hub Nicosia.  

During the day and a half agenda the participants managed to define some important future steps, agree on how some activities should be further developed and catch up about the status of the initiatives implementation in each country, as well about the organization of stakeholder table meetings.

On the first day on the agenda we had to work on Recommendations/guidelines for policy makers and stakeholders, the Research action,  afterwards we continued with Quality insurance, the monitoring of the 8 activities and closed the first day with the wrap up and conclusion.

On the second day we continued with presentation and discussion about the Dissemination of the project, the Framework and how to proceed with finalization at due time, ended with activities from the aspect of the management of the project and had free time to explore the amazing city of Pau.

Thanks to all who participated and made this great event happen!
