After three years of working and learning together, the LISTO project is coming to an end on October 14, 2020. To be precise, the “eligibility period” of the Erasmus+ funding ends on October 14 – the LISTO collaboration will continue. (More about this in a later blog post)
The original plan was to celebrate the project conclusion during a final meeting in Recife, Brazil. The global COVID19 pandemic has made this impossible and plans for a “family reunion” of the LISTO consortium are on ice for now. But we will celebrate LISTO with a series of 3 dissemination webinars, sharing the main results of our cooperation and presenting 3 publications (forthcoming in English, Spanish, Portuguese):
- September 23 – Webinar 1: Accelerating Innovation with University-Industry Collaboration
- September 30 – Webinar 2: Developing an International Virtual Classroom
- October 7 – Webinar 3: Strengthening the Entrepreneurial Spirit of Universities
The webinars will feature speakers from all 10 LISTO partners, our associate partners (e.g. ANII, MINCyt) and invited guests from FAUBAI, UNIcollaboration and more. The webinars are open to anyone interested. For registration and more details, visit https://listoproject.eu/webinars
Update: The whole webinar series is available for watching on the LISTO Youtube Channel.
In addition, we are happy to share our experience with other projects and networks, and at international conferences:
