CIRCULAR Kick-Off Meeting and Collaborative Peer Learning Workshop in Coimbra, Portugal
During the meeting project related issues such as Project Management, Quality Assurance and financial issues were discussed as well as some guest speakers were invited who held speeches about Circular Economy, Social Innovation and Collaborative Networks.
In the workshop, European partners presented the best practices and case studies on topics such as waste management and circular economy. Moreover, the workshop was a platform for mutual exchange and learning about the third mission of universities and specific challenges SEA universities face. The consortium developed the methodology for the next project activities (consultation of stakeholders in SEA countries and co-design of the CIRCULAR model).
The meeting and workshop were very successful since partners worked a lot, had many fruitful discussions and grew closer as a consortium.
Apart from the working sessions, the partners also had time to discover the beautiful city of Coimbra and try local food. Thank you to the host IPC!
