Agron Haidari led the session and has discussed the approach on the development of Life-Long Learning Courses through the established T2P Association.
Gzim Idrizi has updated the partners on the Round II delivery. Majority of the equipment has arrived, however, due to COVID-19 some equipment is facing delivery issues. Round III of the final purchase is in the process, awaiting for the offers from suppliers.
Gresa Ferri has updated the partners on the details of Special Mobility Strand:
Students mobilities: 6 students managed to start their mobilities (2 are completed – 4 ongoing); 14 in total are on hold.
Staff mobilities outgoing: 66 mobilities realized; 60 to be realized
Staff mobilities incoming:11 realized, all from UNWE, Bulgaria and University of Ljubljana; 40 to be realized.
NWRC partner has responded that all mobilities are on hold till Spring 2021.
Salzburg partner (represented by Ulrike Szigeti ) has informed the Consortium that they still can host 2-3 students, however, proposed to put on hold staff mobilities. UNZ and UASF will be checking with their students’ possibilities to participate in this mobility.
UL partner (represented by Majda Cernic) has informed Consortium that Slovenia has introduced mandatory 14 days’ quarantine, thus mobility of the staff is not possible at this moment.
Response from UNWE and Geisenheim is awaited.
Monthly follow up will be done with the partners to check if mobilities can be resumed with possible planning incoming semester (2020-2021).
It was proposed to vote with the Consortium if we plan to move the Scientific Conference to an online version or we will implement it in Sprint 2021, which will mean extension of the project.
Partners were reminded to send the abstracts by the extended deadline of 15th August 2020.
The meeting was finished by Mihone Kerolli, who thanked all the partners for their continuous work on the project.
