The Kick-Off-Meeting of LISTEN – Learning Intercultural Storytelling – was held on 27./28.02.2017 in Göttingen, Germany.
In good and inspiring atmosphere representatives of all seven partners out of six European countries – Austria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden and the United Kingdom – discussed ideas and objectives of the project. The Kick-Off-Meeting was a very good opportunity to meet and get to know the new partners and to reconnect with old partners.
On the 20th and 21st of February the 13th Network meeting for Intermediary Organisations (IO) of the EYE programme took place in Brussels.
One reason for this was the start of the new sixth cycle of the programme and the welcome of all new partners.
