On 13 June 2023, the consortium joined in Húsavík, Iceland for the 4th and final transnational meeting of the SPECIAL project.
SPECIAL project that started in 2021, brings together seven partners from six European countries (Sweden, Italy, Iceland, Belgium, Spain and Romania) and is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, aims to strengthen, reignite and nurture the “life” and “soft” skills of young people who are neither studying nor working in the European Union (NEETs) to help them (re)integrate into post-COVID societies and labour markets.
During the meeting, the partners were able to discuss the status of the projects deliverables and the work ahead in the the final stretch. Meeting face2face was an important chance to go into depth matters such as evaluation, administrative aspects as well as communication of the products of the project.
In the last weeks of the project the partners will work on the development of PR4 Operational Guidelines and Policy Recommendation, the 2 deliverables that are strategically relevant for the uptake of the project and its sustainability.
The SPECIAL Training Toolkit (PR3) is ready and uploaded on the platform. Accessable, attractive and effective content for young people not in education nor in employment. The OER platform, hosts the products resulting from the project (reports, training, guidelines and recommendations) and is now available at www.projectspecial.eu in six languages (English, Spanish, Italian, Icelandic, Romanian and Swedish)
The meeting was a great chance to learn from our work and to strengthen the bonds for further collaboration.
