At the beginning of a new academic year on the 5th of October 2020/2021 partners met to discuss adjustment of project functions and activities under complicated pandemic conditions of COVID19 aggravated by absence of face to face exchanges among partners. The meeting took place at MS Teams platform. Partners used this opportunity to report on successes and challenges in project implementation at their institutions. Among the issues discussed was NEO Russia monitoring feedback. The NEO evaluation of the work of Russian partners was positive. The monitoring was held online during quarantine period and was very helpful because it indicated the weak and strong points of the project from the initial stage. When discussing dissemination issues partners shared their impression about FlexWBL inter project coaching session held in the frame of the International online conference «Modeling E4E (education for employment) processes: innovative educational programmes and network partnership» organized by DSTU on September 11th 2020.

Partners agreed to intensify project promotion at institutional websites and in social media.
