It’s been 20 years since we started working on our first EU-funded project.
Some of them were the fruit of our own ideas, others were on topics we had no idea about, a few dealt with issues close to our hearts, and others allowed us to see wonderful places around Europe and meet incredible people.
Whatever the reason, there have been projects which went beyond mere implementation and reporting. Gabriella could get her teeth into one of her passions: e-learning; Gabor could make a real difference, still visible today, to the land where he grew up; Krisztina could bring her connection with startups and SMEs to the next level, and Ömer pushed the call to the its limits and surprised the evaluators with a project focusing on environmental terrorism.
With over 300 proposals and winning projects, let’s see which ones our senior project managers and expert trainers still remember dearly.
OLAREX: Open Learning Approach with Remote Experiments Project
Coordinated by the University of Deusto in Spain, Olarex was an ICT-based educational project. Through Olarex, Gabriella managed to satisfy one of her passions: education. The project mainly targeted teachers, as it was them who had to use the e-learning tool (the main results of Olarex) to teach kids.
There seems to be nothing but good memories: partners were great, excellent coordination, beautiful locations for project meetings, and direct feedback from the end-user and the cooperation with Hungarian school was key to make OLAREX extremely valuable.
