We are most happy to announce that the Smart Skills Development (SMARTIES) project has started with the Kick-off Meeting organised on 3-4 October 2019. The Kick-off Meeting took place in Budapest, Hungary, on the premises of our Hungarian partner Budapest University of Technology and Economics. During the transnational partnership meeting we had a chance to know each other as this is an entirely new partnership. All the partners were then introduced to the project and we have discussed all the steps the projects has planned in details. Finally, the tasks were distributed and roles assigned to each partner. We are certainly looking forward to great and fruitful work that has now started. We are also looking forward to meet again in March 2020 in Herning, Denmark. on the 2nd Transnational Project Meeting.
