During the last 3 days (2nd to 4th of July), the second meeting of the partners of the ECVET Step consortium has been successfully held in Ede, the Netherlands. The meeting, nicely hosted by AOC Raad, was a nice opportunity to discuss the status of current activities such as the consultation meetings and to clarify the concepts and objectives of some incipient tasks. As usual, a homework list was prepared for all to know exactly what is expected from them for the next 6 months. As or us, IE member Salvador visited Ede and gathered all the necessary information. It was really nice to meet all friends like Jad and Tasos, as well as the ones we are working with for the first time in this project such as Petr, Hans and Ales (among others!).
