8. Network meetings in 2022

It is planned to have a meeting in Barcelona on April 21st - 22nd. This would be a meeting for decision makers with renown keynote speakers, such as Ignatz Heinz from https://www.avallain.com and experts from the fields of AI and innovation. As always there will be ample opportunity for showcasing members' ideas and topics.

The 23rd of April is not only international book day but also the festival of Sant Jordi https://www.barcelonaturisme.com/wv3/en/agenda/14505/sant-jordi-2022.html
So, Corona permitting, this should be the ideal opportunity to visit Barcelona and have inspiring discussions with colleagues as well as some fun. The meeting is being co-organized by Vicens Vives, whose new contact person in the EEPG is Maria de Gispert.
Details about the meeting will be distributed after the next management board meeting in January.

A further meeting about " Sales and marketing prospectives" that had already been planned for 2020 in Kiev was discussed at the AGM, but ultimately cancelled for 2022 due to both the problems caused by Corona and the political situation in Ukraine. Natur & Kultur from Sweden have agreed to co-organize an alternative meeting in late August early September . We are planning for a physical meeting or a hybrid one but will switch to fully virtual if necessary.

Ideas about a meeting or series of meetings concerning the quality of learning materials with involvement of the BELMA jury was proposed by Sintija Buhanosvska from Zvaigzne. This idea is being pursued and will also be discussed at the MBM.
