The ENTOS team is so delighted to say: “we were finally able to meet!”. After managing the project online for two years and with many challenges and complications affecting the team members from inside and outside the project, meeting in real was well overdue. The five partner organisations travelled from Spain, Lithuania, Slovakia, and Italy, to be received by the partners from Greece. We were greatly hosted by the University of Thessaly in Volos who gave us a wonderful welcome.
Finally together, the team was able to tackle the remaining actions that are planned for the project until its end early next year. But first things first, it was very important for the whole team to take some time to greet each other, shake hands, and exchange gifts and words of support and gratitude towards one another. During these past two years, the project has been rocked a few times, but the constant support and sense of collaboration between the partners helped make it through. Recognising the strong team spirit in this project made each partner feel very humble. Moving on to the core of the project’s work and laser focused, the team tackled each point on the meeting agenda with efficiency and dynamism. The key points discussed:
- Finalising the training course developed for PE teachers on recognising and fostering entrepreneurial knowledge, skills and attitude through sport activities, and the different language versions.
- Keeping on developing the ENTOS platform where the teachers will have access to the training course.
- Organising the international training week that will take place in Slovakia in October and to which PE teachers and trainers from all five countries will be invited in order to test out the training course.
The whole team was very satisfied with this meeting and the points discussed as many decisions were made on the forthcoming actions. The time in Volos was concluded in an enthusiastic atmosphere, concluding that meeting in real life brings an undeniable value to the collaboration in European projects such as ENTOS.
