The 2nd Transnational Project meeting

The 2nd Transnational Project meeting, held online the 1st and 2nd July 2020, had the aim of discussing in an operative way on the activities started in the previous months by the consortium and deepened during various virtual alignment meetings held before.

The objectives of the meeting were the following ones:

  • To approve the draft of the comparative analysis created by Companhia de Dança de Almada
  • To approve the Round tables strategy in terms of contents and results
  • To approve next Peer Learning Workshop in terms of location, format and schedule
  • To make a state of the art on communication
  • To adapt the budget of the activities and go through financial aspects

The 1st day of the meeting was dedicated to one-to-one discussion among Ca.Da. and partners in order to deepen some aspects of the desk research held in each Country, related to the state of the art of the dance professional sector. The discussion allowed partners to get aligned on the situation in all countries as well as to promote the exchange of ideas. Main topics were addressed with each company according to the results emerged in their countries and after discussion, and Ca.Da. gathered all the necessary information to create a first draft of the comparative analysis to be sent to partner so that they could have a better idea on how to address the professional profiles during the round tables to be organised.

The 2nd day of the meeting was about the organisation of the round tables to be held in each Country with key local and national stakeholders, in order to discuss the dance professionals’ roles, their knowledge and skills needs, as well as to discuss the recognition of qualification and effective learning paths. Partners discussed how they envisaged the round tables in terms of structure, contents, stakeholders to be invited, results and supporting documents to be collected. Partners also discussed the importance to follow the “Strategy for the round tables” – previously created through the collaboration between Companhia de Dança de Almada, Balletto di Roma and Magenta Consultoria –  in order to have important information regarding the logistic organisation of the round tables, communication with stakeholders, topics to be discussed, results to be achieved, together with the EQF leaflet and facilitation strategy provided my Magenta Consultoria, to give important tools and techniques for their realisation. Partners also had the opportunity to confirm the implementation period of the round tables, to be held between July and December 2020.
