The partners of Digi4SME – Digital Competences of VET Trainers for SME project met for the first time on 29th April 2021. The meeting was held online due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic but the enthusiasm and willingness to work on the project was as tangible as if we were in presence.

Kick-off meetings always have a very busy agenda, everything has to be defined: the responsible partners present management, dissemination plan and evaluation strategies and the project is analysed in depth to make sure to plan all the activities on time. This is when work on the project results is planned together and when partners determine who does what.

Kick-off meetings, although this is actually a characteristic of all partnership meetings, are filled with positive energy, an exciting energy that lasts over time.
