Final partners’ meeting in Liège

VTJ2 partners will organize a last meeting on the 8th and 10th March in Liège (Belgium).

They will have the opportunity to discuss the project status, finalize each result and prepare all necessary documents for the completion of the Vip-Tech-Job: Time 2 Act!.

End of the VTJ2 project

After 2 years of effort and commitment, it is time for the VTJ2 project to come to an end.

Its results will reach a wider public and will be used by the VTJ2 target groups.

As expected, this moment is extremely important and emotional for the partners involved in the project. The consortium shared a cordial working environment with interesting discussions and insights during the development of the final products.

Starting from January and until the completion of the project in March, the national multiplier events will also take place in Italy, Spain and Greece and will feature interesting speakers from local stakeholders.
