The project’s kickoff meeting took place the 29th and 30th of September coinciding with the Iberoamerican Congress for Public innovation

During the 29th and 30th of September TOGIVE project partners met in San Cristobal de la Laguna for the project kick off meeting, organised by the University of La Laguna, the project’s Leader, and the General FoundatiTogive_kickoff_4on of the University.

The kick off meeting represented a space for partners presentation and exchange of contacts, and, above all, the opportunity to set the ground for the project’s initiation. Therefore, partners discussed and reached a common understanding on the project’s goals and objectives, the methodology and approach to project’s output, agreed on protocols for communication and reporting, reviewed activities, outputs and deliverables and established dates for future meetings.

The good understanding between partners and the successful development of the kick off meeting is a guaranty for the project’s proper development taking in consideration that TOGIVE is a highly complex and ambitious project managed by a transnational consortium formed by 13 organizations (universities, businesses, international organizations) both in Europe (from Spain, Italy and the UK) and in Latin America (from Mexico and Argentina).

Togive_kickoff_2Coinciding with the IIIrd edition of the Iberoamerican Congress for Public innovation, the project was presented to the 360 participants, mostly public servants, policy makers and decision makers from Iberoamerican countries.  

TOGIVE is cofinanced by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and aims to close this gap by creating a digital platform where companies, public bodies, universities, foundations or any kind of organisation would be able to follow Open Government quality training and teach European and Latin American public servants from HEIs, local governments, national governments, regional bodies, etc., to improve their skills.
