On 19 and 20 January 2022, the partners of the Erasmus + Agile2Learn project gathered virtually to officially launch the project activities and to establish the work plan that will be followed in the following months. These two fruitful days gave the project partners the opportunity to discuss the next steps to come and to analyse the challenges to overcome.
The meeting was commenced with a welcome note and opening remarks by the project coordinator EPMA, from the Czech Republic, giving the opportunity to all the partners of the consortium to present themselves, their organizations as well as their projects.
A detailed overall project presentation was shared by EPMA, establishing the guidelines for a successful and effective implementation. Each partner was then given the opportunity to present their planned work and outcomes and all activities were synchronized to reach the overall objective of improving education in the partner countries and eventually in European educational system overall.
