In regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fourth steering group’s meeting of “Bridging the Gap: new mentoring methods for young creative entrepreneurs in Europe” took place in the form of an on-line conference (instead of the scheduled meeting in Malaga). Representatives of all partner organisations took part in the meeting organised on May 21st 2020. During the first part, issues connected to current project management, the submitted progress report, evaluation and current monitoring, as well as the potential impact of the pandemic on the results and the project’s schedule were discussed. Then, the partners focused on summarising the most important matters concerning the project’s activities, especially the IO4 Curriculum Learning Modules and Resources. ARTeria, as the leader of IO5, referred to the assumptions of the User Experience Compendium – the hitherto completed work and the following actions, and Dimitra to IO6 – Online Educational Resource.
“Bridging the Gap: new mentoring methods for young creative entrepreneurs in Europe” – is an intersectional strategic partnership, which concentrates on the development of educational priorities of professional training of teachers and mentors, with the particular emphasis on open and innovative education, digital education and modern methods of teaching. Important aspects of the project are also elements of educating young people in the field of entrepreneurship, and also counteracting their social exclusion. We work on the development of creative skills in the field of entrepreneurship (with partners from Great Britain, Italy, Greece, Slovakia and Spain) as an important and innovative solution for many young people, struggling with severe challenges associated with entering the labour market, as the result of the economical crisis of 2008. The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union. We also invite you to the project’s site and its FB profile.
