The first meeting of EUpTrain: Transnational knowledge exchange between trainers of low-skilled adults in multiple European countries was held on 30 October 2020.
Due to the global emergency COVID-19 partners were forced to hold the first meeting through an online conference.

The main aim of the EUpTrain project The objective of EUpTrain is to create a transnational network between Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, Greece and Romania in order to share knowledge at European level between organisations specialised in adult education through the exchange of experts and the development of a sustainable handbook including good practices and transnational methods for trainers working with low-skilled adults.
The result of EUpTrain will be a handbook (translated in 8 languages) containing the results of knowledge exchange activities, which will take the form of workshops between partners, in particular a collection of concrete examples of international best practices and methodologies for trainers working with adults.
During the meeting the partners discussed the project structure and the first activities to be undertaken. Initially the OEJAB project coordinator welcomed us and dedicated some time to the knowledge of the partnership giving the possibility to the different partners to introduce themselves and then explained in detail the project showing the objectives, the methodology and introducing the different roles of the partners. During the meeting we discussed the content of the Handbook, the final result of the project, and the activities to be carried out.
At the end of the meeting the coordinator distributed the different tasks to the partners and communicated the project deadlines. The meeting ended with the decision to organize a further online meeting in December 2020 with the aim to review progress.
