Mid-February general project meeting - A renewed approach for stakeholders' engagement

Posted on 4 March 2021 by CHILD-UP team

On 15-16 February 2021, the CHILD-UP partnership was virtually convened to discuss the overall state-of-the-art of the project implementation. The agenda of the two-day meeting included sessions dedicated to all the active work packages of the project, namely Work Package 5 (Qualitative analysis), WP6 (Evaluative analysis of activities), considerations on WP1 (Ethics requirements) and WP8 (Communication, dissemination and stakeholders networking), as well as general sessions focused on its administrative aspects, on the evaluation of the “health conditions” of the project, and on the Scientific Advisory Board and the International Stakeholders Committee.

Throughout a fruitful and participatory discussion, some innovative developments were agreed upon by the partners, with particular reference to a new and more engaging stakeholders’ involvement approach. The useful communication and dissemination networks locally and internationally generated by the partnership during the first half of the project lifecycle will, in fact, constitute the basis of a new and more interactive phase for the CHILD-UP stakeholders, through the creation of new dialogic environments illustrated below.
