Fifth SAMEurope Transnational Meeting at the Universitat Jaume I de Castellón

On September 21st and 22nd, the SAMEurope team travelled to Castellon for the 5th transnational meeting of the project while other partners who could not be present attended the 2-day meeting remotely. This was an opportunity to discuss the project’s progress as well as its next steps for the following months.

What’s new?

After analyzing the results of the questionnaire, the task force was able to acknowledge and classify 31 benefits and 14 good practices that will appear in the final version of the Guide of Good Practices and be a reference point for both DC students and the partner universities taking part in the project. The meeting also enabled the consortium to further define what covers being a DC student within the scope of SAMEurope in order to find a definition that can apply to all current members and new universities that would like to join the project in the future.

DC students will also be directly involved in the project building as they will be taking part in the sociological study, a very promising first draft of which was presented to the consortium during the meeting. Its aim is to determine the different ways a mobility abroad can have an impact on both the students’ professional and sports career in the future. 

Last but not least, the SAMEurope team was able to have a first interesting look at the implementation of the IT tool and how it will be working on the inside. A certain number of information on the sports environment and facilities as well as the curriculum for each institution will be available to ease the university choice for DC students.
