From 9 to 11 September, the Institute took part in the second Project Meeting of the CHILD-UP Project organised by the University of Northampton – UoN at Waterside Campus, Northampton, UK. The working sessions of the three-day meeting were dedicated both to administrative and substantial matters, which were discussed by the Communication, Dissemination and Impact Working Group (CDI-WG) and the research partners in an initial common session.
This UK project meeting also represented a crucial step forward for CHILD-UP, as it hosted the very first meetings of both the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) and the International Stakeholders’ Committee (ISC). These two bodies, conceived by the partners as two fundamental supporting “instruments” for the development of the project and the achievement of its objectives, were presented to the whole consortium through two sessions, on Tuesday morning and afternoon, during which issues related to the implementation and sustainability of the project from the scientific, social and legal point of view were deeply discussed.
The project meeting was closed by the ISC session on Wednesday morning, in which the CDI working group collected important suggestions and proposals coming from the stakeholders’ perspective, with specific focus on the key CHILD-UP concepts and their value in the communication and dissemination processes.
The next project meeting will be held in Krakov, Poland, in January 2020 at the Jagiellonian University of Krakow (UJ).
