2nd Coordination Meeting of the Creahlands, Erasmus + financed project, took placed on 23-24 May 2022 in Hasselt, Belgium. Project partners met to discuss the advancement of the project and the forthcoming tasks.
The event, hosted by the University College Leuven-Limburg (UCLL) and coordinated by Universidade da Coruña (UDC), was focused on the project follow-up, the future steps and the long-term goals. The meeting was an opportunity for half of eight Creahlands partners from six countries (Belgium, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain) to meet in-person for the very first time as well as to co-create a collective path towards the achievement of the project outputs in both face-to-face and hybrid sessions.
The main aim of the project Creahlands is to create a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) devoted to Smart Specialization in the Creative Management of the Rural Heritage and Landscape. During the meeting all attending partners discussed the MOOC study programme and how different contents will be prepared by the project partners. We also reached agreements on the evaluation system to be implemented, the name of the MOOC and the certification system.
The working meetings were followed by social activities that strengthened the bonds between the project partners. The Creahlands team is very much looking forward to its upcoming pilot course in Viterbo, Italy, in October.
