The partners of GASTROFISH – “INCREASING THE EMPOWERMENT OF YOUTH BY IMPROVING THE DIGITAL e-LEARNING IN GASTRO-FISH” (2019-3-TR01-KA205-080005), a project funded by the Erasmus+ programme, KA205 – Strategic Partnerships for school education, had the opportunity to meet in Longos Aigialeia, Greece, to discuss project developments.

In the days preceding the Transnational Meeting, some participants from the countries of the consortium organisations, i.e., Greece, Italy, Turkey, Spain, had the opportunity to get to know better some Greek realities operating in the fisheries and gastro-kitchen sectors. During these Learning/Teaching/Training Activities (LTTAs), it was also possible to learn how the supply chain of some types of marine species develops, from fishing to the table, and what are the best cooking techniques to preserve the organoleptic and nutritional qualities of fish and seafood. INNOPOLIS allowed participants to visit the local fish market for an authentic experience and to compare the raw materials at the various fish counters.

The opening of the second Transnational Meeting among the GASTROFISH partners was opened by the President of INNOPOLIS, Katerina Sotiropoulou. The final goal of the meeting was to lay the foundations to produce the next project outputs, including the creation of an e-learning platform on the core topics of GASTROFISH.

Due to the inconveniences related to the Covid-19 pandemic, CEIPES was able to take part in the meeting in online mode. However, CEIPES will have the opportunity to organise the LTTAs and the third Transnational Meeting in January.
