The Final Transnational Meeting of VET2Business project was held from 15th to 16th of October 2019 in Thessaloniki, Greece, hosted by the Municipality (
https://thessaloniki.gr/) in the City Hall “Manolis Anagnostakis”. 

As VET2Business project is coming to an end this December, the partners had the opportunity to discuss the progress, the outcomes and the results achieved throughout these last two years, to exchange their views on lessons learnt and to recall their common experiences. Besides, they identified the next steps that should be done during the next two months before the official termination of the project. 

During the meeting, special focus was given on the online “e-portfolio” platform and the online apprenticeship monitoring tool, both finalized, fully functional and integrated into the VET2Business website with the aim to promote the project as a whole and allow interested parties to benefit from the overall spectrum of methodologies and activities that have been designed. Furthermore, the partners concluded on the details for the final piloting phase and shared their opinions on how to further “spread the word”, even though it was acknowledged there was considerable progress on that field.

The meeting was attended, also, by representatives of the associated partner DEHOGA (https://www.dehoga-brandenburg.de/), who informed the partnership about their initiatives on the dissemination and outreach of the project’s results and their forthcoming activities.

VET2Business Project aims to establish a solid regional partnership between Greece and Germany to tackle the identified skills gap in the Tourism Sector by creating two innovative VET curricula for Digital and Intercultural Skills supported by a Work-based Learning scheme. The project has been coordinated by AKMI S.A. (https://iek-akmi.edu.gr/), represented in the meeting by Mr Theodoros Grassos, Director of the Department of EU and International Projects and Mrs Viktoria Topalidi, Project Manager.
