TPM - WAAT Transnational Project Meetings

3nrd face-to-face TPM in Foligno, Italy

April 25th to 28th, 2022

The meeting took place at the premises of EGInA in Foligno.

The main purpose of the meeting was to bring the project to an end and to discuss how to guarantee the sustainability of the activities carried out. We worked in groups on the following topics:

  • How do we ensure that the project's results will remain available and be used by others?
  • What are the activities and results that will be maintained after the end of the EU funding, and how will we ensure the resources needed to sustain them?
  • How did the project contribute to the achievement of the most relevant priorities as indicated in the description section?

In the late afternoon we went for the Treasure Hunt “Discovering the Cultural Heritage of Foligno” organised by the host. It was an interactive way to see the city of Foligno and also to gain knowledge of how cultural heritage can be presented in a playful manner.

On the next day we participated in the multiplier event organised by the Italian partner EGInA. During the program, all of us (each partner) had the opportunity to show one of the videos created according to our guidelines, and to share the experiences we had gained in creating the products of the WAAT project.

2nd face-to-face TPM in Plungė, Lithuania

March 7th to 10th, 2022

The meeting took place at Plungė Public Library.

Firstly, partners reviewed the WAAT platform and discussed questions and suggestions for its improvement. Many of the videos to be shot have already been uploaded on the project platform, see www.waatproject.eu.

Secondly, partners discussed the upcoming multiplier events. Foreseen dates for the events are: April 1st Croatia, 4th Spain, 8th Austria and Lithuania, 21st Netherlands, 27th Italy.

Thirdly, each partner presented its dissemination progress. All countries disseminated within similar channels (social media, newsletters, articles, various events, face-to-face with partners and stakeholders at local/regional/national levels). Because of the different background, partners’ stakeholders differ, but reach all necessary target groups.

The meeting was rounded off with a visit to the Curonian Spit, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Lithuania.
