Successful kick-off meeting: Erasmus+ funded project EICAA started

On February 11th, 2021 the all-day kick-off meeting in the project Entrepreneurial and Intrapreneurial Competences Assessment Alliance (EICAA) took place online.

9 partners, 5 countries

The focus of the digital kick-off was on getting to know each other and to agree on content. It started with the introduction of the organizations and people involved in the EICAA project as well as an exchange of those partners who will work more closely together in a working package.

Afterwards, agreements were made on how to work together and the next steps for developing the work packages were presented. Special attention was paid once again to the understanding of the EntreCompetence Competence Framework (EntreComp), which serves as the conceptual starting point of the project. Finally, the organizational framework conditions were presented and discussed, and project management processes were coordinated. A representative of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, which EICAA oversees on behalf of the European Commission and as project supervisor, was also represented at the meeting.

In the steps, intermediate statuses are presented at monthly online consortium meetings, open questions are discussed and agreements to achieve milestones critical to success are evaluated. The content-related focus is initially on the development of the EICAA Conceptual Model, which creates the conceptual basis for all subsequent project results and provides for a further development of the EntreComp. The next physical partner meeting is planned for September 2021 in Barcelona.
