Transnational Meetings

Transnational Meetings

Transnational projects promote interconnectivity between people. In the case of the Erasmus+ they complement ideas and approaches in education and/or in research programmes, they promote innovation and they have a European added value. EASY GOV as an EU project of the ERASMUS+ family enhances this concept. Overall, opportunities, challenges and aspects as development phase, dissemination, analysis and project management issues may vary from country to country and therefore it is considered crucial to develop the proposed project in a transnational environment, with view to exploring as much as possible. The diversity of the partnership based on its origin creates opportunities and develop equal potentials for providing a harmonious and balanced coexistence and progress.

More specifically, during the course of the project 4 Transnational Project Meetings (TPM) will take place. TPMs will be organized for project implementation and coordination purposes. The main goal of the TPM will be to plan ahead, monitor the progress and resolve technical/financial issues
