Workshop 5 in Finland
Partners met in Jyväskylä at JAMK University of Applied Sciences on 26 and 27 March 2014. The purpose of the meeting was to review the progress of Route Implementation Plan formulation with an individual presentation of the Plan Outlines, followed by a general review of project progress and the logistic arrangements for a project final video to be shot in Summer 2014. In the final part of the Workshop the Governance Instrument n. GI-P12-7 (GOPP workshop methods) was tested in order to undertake a Logical Framework Structure for partnership joint ideas after project end.

Steering Committee Meeting 6
SCM6 in Sevilla, Andalusia (Spain). The CERTESS Project Steering Committee held its meeting n. 6 in Sevilla on 11-12 June 2014, reviewing the technical and financial progress of the project and deciding on remaining actions. The first day was devoted to the presentation by the partners of their individual Route Implementation Plan now well ahead in their formulation stage.

Mentoring assistance
The partners agreed to introduce an activity not originally anticipated at the time of project design, i.e. the opportunity of the Lead Partner team visiting the region of individual partners to carry out technical work together.
The purpose is to streamline design procedures and to tailor-make actions to match the Route theme chosen by the partner. 2 mentoring sessions took place in Finland and Czech Republic, with more to follow in the period July to September 2014.

During the 1st Semester 2014, the Lead Partner attended Mid-term Seminars organized by 2 partners, Malta and Czech Republic. Partners from Finland and Poland attended also external conference (Viking) and fair (ITB).

  • Completion of the Route Implementation Plan by each partner
  • Realization of a video which will recollect students’ impressions during their visit to each partner region
  • Project Final Conference in Luxembourg on 22 October
