The first project meeting of the new Erasmus+ project “Innovative VET for key competences in the emerging field of forest bioeconomy (VET4BioECONOMY)” was held in Zagreb on 5/10/2018. The meeting in the organization of the Croatian Forest Research Institute was held in the premises of Hrvatsko šumarsko društvo. Altogether 16 partners from Austria, Croatia, and Slovenia participated at the meeting. They had a chance to get an overview of project activities, financial and contractual obligations and future dissemination plan. Furthermore, discussion on next activities within the project was held.
This fruitful meeting served as a basis for future collaboration and work on next steps, new curriculum on forest bioeconomy and short-term joint staff training. We all look forward for future collaborationon in the recently started project which will result in two multilingual intellectual outputs (1) the curriculum and (2) the e-course on forest bioeconomy, primarly developed for forestry and wood processing professionals. Stay tuned!
