Partners in the SEED Project held their final partner meeting and peer review event in Ghent and Brussels on 7-9 September 2021.
The project welcomed more than 50 participants from across Europe to examine the outputs and activities of the project and help establish a plan for exploitation of the outcomes.
The exploitation plan was based on a workshop at the University of Ghent on September 8th 2021, carried out with more than 40 peer reviewers from across Europe.
The plan was developed to describe the activities that should be carried out to enhance the successful exploitation of the project results in terms of future development after the project has been completed. Exploitation planning usually involves the promotion and use of the products or processes and placing them on the market.
An introduction to the project was given by the project coordinator Altheo Valentini from Umbraflor. The partners from Belgium, Italy, Slovakia and Spain presented the impact of the project in their own institutions, regions and countries.
The Powerpoint slides are provided here.
Following this introduction, a peer review workshop activity took place where participants were invited to add their expertise to the project by answering the following four questions:
- In what areas should the SEED Project continue to make an impact?
- Who are the key stakeholders / targets to take forward the work of SEED?
- Which parts of the SEED outputs can most be used by others?
- How can we engage companies, training organisations and Ministries of education?
Based on this review an exploitation plan was presented at the final conference of SEED on September 9th 2021.
