End of the Project
Today, September 10, after 21 months of hard work, our project has reached its end.
Although its implementation has suffered difficulties because of Covid-19 pandemic and we had to adapt the whole timetable, after implementing all the activities, we can conclude that the expected results of the project have been achieved with a high degree of satisfaction, the impact in participants and organisations has been huge in terms of new competences and comprehensive development and the participation and communication between all partners have made the overcoming of difficulties easy. This has been especially rewarding for all partners and stakeholders involved, as the project activities have been implemented and carried out during a global pandemic with many limitations and restrictions.
