After 3 years of hard work, the activities under the Actimentia project, funded by the EC ERASMUS + program, have been completed. The consortium was composed of representatives of various training organizations from 5 European countries plus Israel – universities, organizations for adult education, vocational training, delivery of social services.
Partners made a general presentation of their organizations and their best gold practices for older adults. Then, the coordinator of the project CHELLUD presented project’s main objectives as well as outputs to be achieved. The next steps have been clearly defined and tasks were evenly distributed among all partners. Next on-line meeting was scheduled to be held in February 2021.
At the beginning of July, the first pilot implementation of the online training platform of the ACTIMENTIA project in Bulgaria was carried out.
At the end of February 2020, the last meeting of the consortium under the ACTIMENTIA project took place. This time our hosts were colleagues from the training organization FRODIZO, Patras, Greece.
The main objective of this meeting was to discuss about the Protocol (Curriculum) – final version revision and recommendation for improvements, presented by Fundación Aljaraque and LEB, as well as the Interactive platform that hosts the protocol, main contents and sections, the self-evaluation tool and next stages.
