The partners actively participated in every activity of the project where they had the possibility to get to know each other personally and professionally in order to make contacts between occupational centers through a participatory, interactive and inclusive methodology which consisted of presentations, sharing of ideas, dynamics, open discussions, group works, and frontal presentations.

Outcomes of the activity

The areas of interest among the participants of this activity were sustainability, trans-nationality and innovation. The work was divided into learning and sharing of good practice and innovative aspects (peer to peer) and cooperation.
