Biennale 2022 in Venice, Italy and will be facilitated by the leading partner, Aalborg University (AAU) and AMAT.  The place is chosen for its extraordinary facilities and venues for the type of workshop planned, and because several of the partners have previously facilitated similar successful activities of a similar nature here. The activity type of C5 will be a Short-term joint staff training event, and the duration will be 5 working days and will be scheduled in a way to ensure the easiest and most cost effective travel itinerary for the participating partners. The meeting is planned as a physical event, but due to the current COVID-19 situation, the MC will keep a close eye on the situation and will be ready to employ the contingency plans that have been made in the preparation phase (See the section Preparation). If the meeting is conducted as a physical event as planned, the hosting partners, AAU and AMAT will ensure that everything is facilitated in a way to ensure that all activities are conducted in the safest way possible for all participants.

Importantly, the Short-term joint staff training event will be held in conjunction and parallel with C6, the UpCreate Blended Mobility of Young people. This will result in some activities and sessions conducted in parallel, and some activities and sessions conducted with participating partners and young people blended C5 will function as a workshop where representatives from the partner institutions will supervise their respective winner in a formal and informal learning environment to further develop the participants’ winning proposals. The workshop will take the form of a friendly competitive format, aiming at developing and subsequently identify the best UpCreate proposal that in the best way showcases the social innovative solution regarding our European cultural heritage. This friendly competitive environment will ensure that the young innovators will acquire competencies that utilize creativity and innovation that will enable them to take the position as local entrepreneurs around Europe.

Parallel to this, partners will also engage in internal workshops, where the progress and work done by the young participants will be discussed and evaluated, and the criteria for the winner will be finalised. The reveal of the winning proposal will take place during the final Multiplier Event (E7) which will be the Session at the International Art Biennale 2022 in Venice. During the workshop, all the partners will continuously engage with the young participants by facilitating lectures in the plenum and individual supervision. This to ensure that each participant will receive feedback on the development of their contributions and to secure an iterative process regarding the learning outcome, as well as a social interactive possibility. The Venue at the International Art Biennale 2022 in Venice allows the participating partners and the young innovators to interact with the art interested audience visiting the Biennale, and from this interaction, the inno
vative solutions will be renewed and improved in a co-creation and participatory approach in a synergy between the young innovators, the partners, and the audience.

C5 will be held in conjunction with a closed Transnational Meeting ( to optimize project resources and reduce overall travel costs and environmental
impact. C5 will also be held in conjunction with the Multiplier Event E7.
Participants will include at least one person from each of the UpCreate partners.
