From 9th to 11th September, the consortium gathered in the United Kingdom for the second Project Meeting of the CHILD-UP Project, organized by the University of Northampton – UoN at Waterside Campus, Northampton.
The working sessions were dedicated both to administrative and to substantial matters, which were addressed by the Communication, Dissemination and Impact Working Group (CDI-WG) together with the research partners in an initial joint session. This occasion represented a crucial step forward for CHILD-UP, as it hosted the very first meetings of the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) and the International Stakeholders’ Committee (ISC), the two fundamental supporting “instruments” to the project’s development and the achievement of its objectives. These two bodies were presented to the whole consortium through two sessions, during which issues related to the implementation and sustainability of the project were extensively discussed.
The closing ISC session was held by CDI working group, which collected important suggestions and proposals from the stakeholders’ perspective, with a specific focus on the key CHILD-UP concepts and their value in the communication and dissemination processes.
The next project meeting will be held in Krakov, Poland, in January 2020 at the Jagiellonian University of Krakow (UJ).
