The 2nd project meeting of the StoryAidEU consortium was due to be held in Prague, Czech Republic on Tuesday 17th March 2020. With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the consortium decided to change to an online meeting held on the same day. Even with the difficulties of last minute cancellations and restrictive measures put in place in each partner country, the consortium still had a very productive meeting. Work to date was presented and actions plans have been updated to ensure the project meets its aims. Another follow up meeting will take place in late April where other project activities, such a dissemination and future meetings, will be discussed.
A kick off meeting for the StoryAidEU project was held at ITT in Tralee, Ireland. The meeting took place on the Tuesday 8th October 2019 and saw colleagues from the project consortium come together for the first time. The first section of the agenda focused on ensuring all project partners had a good general overview of project and aims. The afternoon session was dedicated to creating action plans for the first 12 months of the project and the agenda ended with items on project management, dissemination, and communication. importantly, the consortium got to know one another during the coffee breaks, at lunch and during a dinner after the meeting had finished. We look forward to our next meeting in Prague in March 2020.
