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.

This Short-term joint staff training event will be dedicated to further discuss and workshop the UpCreate objectives, goals and plans for the project activities. An important goal of C4 is for partners to get the opportunity to learn from each other, give feedback, workshop and discuss, and continue the design and development of 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 and progress of the respective UpCreate Competitions including Competition briefs and implementation of educational material.

An important aspect of C 4 will be to review and discuss the Competition entries that have been handed in from the various UpCreate Competitions. The criteria for winning will be discussed before a winning entry from each competition is selected This will include the collaborative formulation of feedback to participants.
C4 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 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 environments.
Participants will include at least one person from each of the UpCreate partners.
