On 17th and 18th December, the FUE-UJI, through the EuroFUE-UJI, participated in the first meeting between the partners of the European IMONED project, which was held online. This project, funded by the European Commission under the strategic action “Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for School Education”, aims to provide teachers with an immediate and comprehensive tool that will enable them to organise and deliver classes online in times of pandemic or other similar situations. This first digital meeting of the consortium has served to establish the bases for the implementation of the project and to start with its activity in the coming months.
The Erasmus+ IMONED project has an international consortium coordinated by Florida Centro de Formación Sociedad Cooperativa (Spain) and made up of a total of seven international organisations: FUE-UJI (Spain), Daday District National Education Directorate (Turkey), Sehit Baris Ozturk Secondary School (Turkey), SEDA Association (Poland), The Pontifical University of John Paul II (Poland), Progress Projects Association (Lithuania) and the VSI Human Resources Development Centre (Lithuania).
The consortium of this project will work together to provide resources to teachers to enable them to better adapt to the online educational environment. In this way, IMONED will also develop methodologies for the digitalisation of education. During its first transnational video meeting between the project partners, the IMONED consortium has analysed the project idea, the main objectives, the planned activities and the expected results, designing a calendar of actions for the coming months.

The first transnational meeting between the partners of the Erasmus+ Start Up for Development project, coordinated by FUE-UJI, through EuroFUE-UJI, was held on 10th December. It was an online meeting, led by EuroFUE-UJI, which has served to lay the foundations for the implementation of this project on smart cities and to start with its activity, based on the presentation of the logo and the elements of the corporate identity of the project.
This project, whose main objective is to train experts in smart solutions to promote smart cities in small municipalities, has gathered its consortium in this online session to analyse the project idea, the objectives, the planned activities and the expected results, designing a calendar of actions for the next months. The European Start Up for Development project, with the acronym START UP, will be implemented during 28 months by a consortium coordinated by EuroFUE-UJI and integrated by four other entities from different countries: the Private Training and Tourism Institution Kocatürk Danismanlik (Turkey), the ARID Association (Poland), the Regional Development Agency and Business Support Centre for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (Bulgaria) and the Non-Profit Society Alternative Innovative Development (Greece).
Start up for Development is based on the premise that small municipalities are unaware of the concept of smart cities, as they cannot afford to have smart city experts among their technicians. Therefore, the aim of the project is to prepare a course for trainers who will be able to give municipalities a clear and complete explanation of what smart cities would be, so that they can implement concrete actions aimed at turning these small municipalities into smart villages.
