The Transnational Project Meeting Innovation for Open Ecosystems (I4OE) took place on the 26 and 27 of September in Portugal.
It was a moment of discussion and sharing between the different partners from three European countries (Greece, Norway and Portugal) in order to reflect on the activities carried out and to move forward with future activities.
On day 1, the participants met at the facilities of the Parish Council of São Domingos de Rana, Cascais where they got to know the work developed by this partner, as a public institution at the service of its local community. The project partners shared experiences, according to the actions foreseen in the I4OE work plan, in an open and fruitful discussion.
The day ended with a visit to the Ilídio Carapeto Museum and a guided tour of the museum spaces and its collection.
On the second day of the meeting, participants visited Change Makers, also in São Domingos de Rana, Cascais. The guided visit, the many activities and the richness of the space were the motto for future collaborations involving the community. The meeting continued with operational aspects related to the report that the project will have to present soon to the National Agency Erasmus Plus.
It was at LusoSpace, also a partner entity in I4OE, that the discussion ended, after having been presented the vanguard and high technology work that this company develops.
The I4OE project has the unusual characteristic of bringing together different sectors of society, from local government, communication and education organisations, businesses and ordinary citizens, in a wide range of actions covering adult education, seeking to build bridges between all these sectors and the community.
