On the 11th of October, 2021, the TAPROOM Partners met face-to-face for the first time in the Lodzky House in Brussels. Keeping in mind the current worldwide situation, the TAPROOM Meeting was a success with most of the partners in presence, with only one partner joining through online conferencing.
During the meeting, the partners discussed the development of IO2: The TAPROOM Training Course, IO3: The TAPROOM Manual for Trainers, IO4: The TAPROOM Platform, IO5: The TAPROOM Guidebook on Certification and over-running topics of project management, evaluation and dissemination.
The partners have evaluated the meeting as effective, well-organised and, finally, very welcome after a long period of online meetings.
Out of the Box was represented by Marko Paunovic (director), who facilitated the meeting, Auguste Taruskaite (project coordinator), Marija Bumbak (project assistant) and Malaz Safrajalani (finance officer).
The next meeting is set to take place in Sofia, Bulgaria, in spring 2022.
The TAPROOM project is implemented by 5 partners from Malta (Malta Business Foundation), Belgium (Out of the Box International), Italy (GAL Molise Verso il 2000), Bulgaria (AVA Creations Foundation) and Germany (Italienische Handelskammer München-Stuttgart Camera di Commercio Italo-Tedesca).
The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ KA2 Programme of the European Commission
