The DISH Erasmus+ project has understandably had some delays, as it revolves around technology training for health and care service staff, who are particularly busy at the moment. Happily Erasmus+ have agreed a six month extension, so that outcomes can be achieved – the project now completes in April 2022.
The DISH project partners met online on the 8th and 9th December for our 5th Consortium Meeting, which was originally planned to be held in Lubeck, Germany. We looked at how far we’ve got with the implementation and testing phase of the project, and the impact that Covid-19 has had on this. each partner gave an update, and several, after initial delays, have been able to implement some training. We also looked at where we can make progress in the future, and what changes we can make to our training to facilitate this.
The DISH project’s most recent newsletter looks at their new partnership with the European Reference Group (ERG), the recent partner’s consortium meeting, and gives updates from partners in Norway and Denmark.
