START Project Kick-off Meeting
Wed, 20 Apr 2022
On the 29th of March 2022, the partners of our new Erasmus+ project – START – got together in Brussels for the official project launch meeting, hosted by the coordinator – the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg (Camarabelux).
This was an excellent opportunity for consortium members to meet and learn more about the expertise and roles of each organization within the consortium, which will all work together to achieve the main project goal of improving the internationalization skills of SMEs in the retail sector. Together with MEUS from Spain, ASSIST Software from Romania, the Polish Chamber of Commerce – KIG from Poland, and Lovila from Cyprus, the coordinator revisited the proposal, offering an overview of the project and exploring the objectives, target groups, milestones, project results and action plan.
Furthermore, the first steps in the implementation of the project were established, focusing mainly on the first project result – the mobile report about the skills needed by retail SMEs. During the meeting, the partners also discussed the dissemination activities, identifying target groups, and setting up dissemination tools and channels. Additionally, the quality control plan and the risk mitigation strategies were examined to ensure a smooth project implementation. The coordinator wrapped up the meeting with a presentation of the Management Handbook, which summarizes the main guidelines and procedures related to project management, including project progress monitoring.
We remind you that START is a project co-funded by the ERASMUS+ program of the European Union and submitted under KA220-VET - Cooperation partnerships in vocational education and training, with project reference 2021-1-BE01-KA220-VET-000034627.
