Event description: The 2nd UpCreate Learning, Teaching and Training Activity (C2) will be held in July 2021 and will be facilitated by the leading partner, Aalborg University (AAU). The meeting will be held as a digital meeting The activity type of C2 will be a Short-term joint staff training event, and the duration will be 3 working days and will be scheduled in a way to ensure the easiest access for the participating partners. The meeting is planned as a digital event, due to the current COVID-19 situation, which has made it necessary to limit the number of physical meetings to the minimum to ensure the overall safety of the participants. However, C 2 will be conducted with the same agenda and goals as a physical meeting AAU will facilitate and coordinate the practical aspects of the digital meeting to allow for the most effective form of the workshop. This might include starting the working days with a joint digital meeting, where the agenda is discussed, followed by smaller break out sessions, where partners workshop in parallel, and to end the working days with a joint meeting where the outputs from the break out sessions are discussed in plenum C2 will take the form of a workshop with a mix of lectures, discussions and presentations by the participants. This Short-term joint staff training event will be dedicated to further closely discuss and workshop the UpCreate objectives, goals and plans for the project activities.
An important goal of C2 is for the UpCreate partners to get the opportunity to learn from each other, give feedback, workshop and discuss, and continue the design and develop the new innovative approaches that will be implemented, tested and evaluated in the Intellectual Outputs. This will include different workshops where partners discuss the parameters and specific goals of the respective UpCreate Competitions including Competition briefs, the production of educational material, criteria for selection winners etc.

The 2nd UpCreate Short-term joint staff training event (C2) will allow the participating partners to further develop a solid collaborative and interdisciplinary foundation for the successful execution of the Intellectual Outputs. The form of the short-term joint staff training event will also work as a catalyst for the cross sectoral collaboration between participants. This is an essential aspect since UpCreate is based on a high degree of interdisciplinary interaction, which will successfully support the achievement of the project’s innovative objectives.

C2 will be based on active participation, where all UpCreate partners will be expected to work positively to develop, present, discuss, and evaluate with their colleagues, resulting in the formation of a dynamic and effective partner group. Hereby, UpCreate will also ensure that all UpCreate partners will gain key competencies and skills as part of their professional development, offer them “mobility capital” within Europe and beyond, and thereby placing them as agents of change in their local environment.
Participants will include at least one person from each of the UpCreate partners.
The 2nd UpCreate Learning, Teaching and Training Activity (C2) will be held in connection with the Multiplier Event E1 – The Art of Food which will be digitally live streamed from Alchemist Taste Lab in Copenhagen, Denmark
