Kick-off Meeting of the SHERPA Project

17th – 18th January 2020 @ International Hellenic University, Kavala, GR

Sherpa Kickoff meeting

The SHERPA kick-off meeting marking the start of project activities was held on 17 January 2020 at the International Hellenic University in Kavala (Greece), the premises of the Project Coordinator AETMA LAB. During the meeting, the SHERPA consortium consolidated its operational plan and established internal procedures for effective collaboration, communication and quality control. Among the key aspects discussed were the main outputs SHERPA is expected to generate, as well as other project milestones and events. In a special online hookup session with the EC’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Seville, Panagiotis Kampylis from the JRC’s Human Capital and Employment Unit presented an update on the EC SELFIE initiative and discussed SELFIE-SHERPA coordination with project partners.

The kick-off meeting proved an excellent opportunity for partners to get to know one another better, thanks also to the typically warm Greek hospitality provided!
