That’s it! The project UNEET was officially launched by a two-day kick-off meeting that happened in Lille on June 18 and 19. The kick-off meeting included several activities and workshops, to ensure consistent understanding of the project, to create an enabling environment for creativity and productivity, and to strengthen the partnership with team-building activities and workshops. All 7 private and public organisations that form the project Consortium were in attendance over the two highly motivational days.
Expectations, concerns and ideas stemmed from instructive activities, informal discussions and notably the workshops. For example, the partners delivered a workshop on the one minute Elevator Pitch to be delivered to an 18-year-old, an SME, a big company and a public representative to aid partners in engagement activity. Furthermore, discussions and decisions were made regarding the project communication plan and the user-experience definition of our target troups, all to fit within our tight schedule. Indeed, as the first 6 months of the project are mostly dedicated to quality information gathering to guide the building of our platform, all partners agreed that this is the primary focus of this stage of the project.
All the partners are very excited to work on this valuable social impact project with many complementary areas of expertise around the table including, training mobility and upskilling.
We already have scheduled other events (such as a new face-to-face meeting in the next few months) and we will soon share with you other news on this website, so stay tuned.
