Continuous Collaboration 

of NutriWellB Partners

The collaboration among NutriWellB partners has been constant since the beginning of the project, and it has played a fundamental role in guaranteeing that the project continues advancing according to the proposal. This continuous collaboration has been enhanced thanks to the transnational project meetings that have taken place since the beginning of the project.

The consortium “kicked-off” the project on February 6th and 7th, 2023, at Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) in Spain. The first meeting was more than a formal introduction. During the meeting, the consortium discussed the fundamental aspects of the project and  established the initial roadmap for project activities by brainstorming and discussing expectations for the main work packages (WPs).

The consortium reunited hybridly for their second time at Nova University of Lisbon on September 18th and 19th, 2023, seven months after their first meeting. The main focus of this meeting was to assess the progress made across various work packages and further refine the development of the course and the dissemination strategies. The meeting was also enriched with the vibrant culture of Portugal. 

Most recently, on April 2nd and 3rd, 2024, the third project meeting took place in Skopje, North Macedonia. The meeting was also conducted in a hybrid mode, to allow all partners to contribute effectively. The discussions were primarily focused on WP3, WP4, and WP5, which are essential for the completion of the project on schedule.

The meeting was mainly centered on the development of the Training Course and its implementation. The meeting provided a valuable opportunity to review content development guidelines, assess the current status of each partner's contributions, and address technical queries essential for the piloting session. The partners also discussed the best way to  recruit the participants and deliver the content in order to be engaging, the practical assignments, the video for each module and other minor issues. The plan and progress on the creation of the Guide for Higher Education and the Awareness Campaigns were also presented. The meeting resulted in a clear idea of the goals and objectives of the campaigns. 

Overall, the onsite transnational project meetings have played an essential role in the implementation of the project. The meetings have allowed the partners in the consortium to strengthen the team spirits as each had the opportunity to learn more about each other beyond the screen. They have been authentic trust-building experiences that would improve the efficiency and working relationships of the team. 

The consortium looks forward to the final meeting that will be held in Madrid in October 2024!
