The project funded by the European program Erasmus +, CIA Project, meets in an online conference to all its partners on July 30. This project, which aims to implement intergenerational civic councils at the international level, has a consortium of 6 partners from Romania, Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Poland, coordinated by the Fundación Universitat Jaume I-Empresa (FUE-UJI).
In order to continue with the monitoring of the project and to ensure that it is developed with the highest possible quality, the partners have decided to meet virtually, until the next transnational meetings of the project. Moreover, this has been the ideal occasion to evaluate the results obtained to date, as well as the materials developed within the framework of the project.
This online meeting has also helped to coordinate the next actions to be carried out in the framework of the project, such as the practical guide for members of intergenerational civic councils (CIA) and the training course on CIA. The meeting was attended by representatives of INNETICA (Spain), Directia Judeteana pentru Sport si Tineret Brasov (Romania), Associação Sójovem das Saibreiras (Portugal), Tavsanli Kaymakamligi (Turkey) Fundacja Instytut Badan i Innowacji w Edukacji (Poland) and the European and international projects office (Spain).
The Erasmus + project Ecoblue Tourism, coordinated by the FUE-UJI, aims to increase entrepreneurship opportunities in blue ecotourism in coastal countries and improve the entrepreneurial skills of young long-term unemployed people who want to develop their own ideas and businesses in this sector. After six months of implementation, the Ecoblue Tourism project publishes its first newsletter that includes the progress of the project so far and the next steps to be followed.

The Vice-rectorate for Research and Transfer and the Scientific Culture and Citizen Science Project of the UJI have organized, in collaboration with the Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit of the Communication and Publications Service, a series of open days to disseminate the activity of the UJI’s research groups in Horizon 2020 projects financed by the European Commission. The conference will be held online on 14, 15, 16 and 17 July from 12:30 to 13:30 and the EuroFUE-UJI will be responsible for organizing one of the sessions.
This conference for the dissemination of European projects which have been or are being implemented by researchers from the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón is divided into 4 open sessions through Zoom platform. Eva Alcón, Rector of the UJI, is in charge of opening the first session and Jesús Lancis, Vice-Rector of Research and Transfer of the UJI, is the coordinator. This session, scheduled on July 14th at 10 am (CET), will focus on the H2020 projects related to the Humanities, Legal and Economic Sciences. These projects are ETHNA System, LARCHER and SMART.
The following sessions, from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm, will start on July 15th with a special focus on the H2020 UJI projects in the field of Materials Science and Engineering, with the projects UNCORRELATED, PEROXIS, SUN2CHEM, DROP-IT, ALEAF, NO-LIMIT, MAESTRO, YPACK, DREAM and REMEB as the main topics. In this case Cristina Villarroya, head of the European and International Projects Office of the UJI will be in charge of coordinating the session.
The next session is on Thursday 17 July, coordinated by Nela Gómez, head of the EuroFUE-UJI and focused on disseminating the European UJI projects related to the field of computing. In this session the projects presented are EL-PEACETOLERO, DE4A, A-WEAR, OPRECOMP, GEO-C and INTERWINE.
Finally, the conferences end on Friday 18 July with a session dedicated to H2020 projects in the field of Health and Experimental Sciences coordinated by Paco Fernández, Head of the Communication and Publications Service of the UJI. These projects at the UJI are mainly H-WORK, TACTILITY, GLUCOTEAR, ECOWEB, AFFECTECH, EHCOBUTLER, ICARE and FF-IPM.
All these sessions within the framework of the Conference “European Research at the UJI” are proposed not only as a platform for the dissemination of the various H2020 projects in which UJI researchers work, but also as an opportunity for dialogue between the University and the business, administration and entrepreneurship sectors with the aim of increasing synergies, communication and knowledge transfer between different social sectors.
