It lasted 2 hours and was very fruitful in terms of information and knowledge gathered for the progress of the project.
On 25th and 26th of February, the Kick off meeting of the project was held in Athens. All the partners had the opportunity to meet each other and know the different knowledge and experiences of their organizations in order to exchange them. On the other hand, it was a good opportunity to discuss in depth about the project aims, activities to do, responsibilities and the way to work during the next two years.
The first steps of the project are: 1) do an assessment about the needs of the end users through more than 600 questionnaires addressed to adults learners, VET staff, and representatives of the sectors (social economy and Tourism); 2) elaborate a state of the art on Virtual Organizations in Education and Training; 3) prepare the Training and Certification framework to ensure that all the partners understand the ECVET features and technical principles.
