From the 28th to the 30th June 2017 the 3rd Consortium Meeting of the H2020 European funded project YOUNG-ADULLLT took place in Granda. University of Granada, one of the YOUNG-ADULLLT partners, hosted the meeting. Researchers from all partners institutions attended the meeting to present and discuss the research updates. The meeting was developed as follows:
- The first day of the meeting was dedidcated to the management, research design and dissemination updates. Afterwards, the research outputs and contributions of the first finalised Working Package on Policy Mapping, Review and Analysis (WP3) were presented. In the afternoon two parallel workshops took place to discuss the fieldwork details for the quantitative indicators (WP4) and the interviews with policy managers, practitioners and young adults (WP5).
- The second day the agreements and summaries on the quantiative and qualitative fieldwork were presented. In the afternoon, the sessions focused on the presentation of the preliminary results on the regional supply and demand of skills across European regions (WP6). All partner countries contributed to the presentation of results and subsequent discussion to agree on further steps.
- The last day of the meeting concentrated on the discussion and first agreements on the design and further development of the local case studies analysis (WP7) in each partner country. At the end of the meeting members of the national advisory boards that attended the 3rd consortium meeting provided critical and constructive comments to further improve the project results and their impact.
The meeting was intense and productive, but the delicious Spanish food and a visit to the beautiful Alhambra made it a really nice experience and facilitated networking and team building across partner institutions.
