EPOS's annual conference "Grensverleggers" emphasises importance of dissemination

EPOS or 'Europese Programma's voor Onderwijs, Opleiding en Samenwerking' is the Flemish National Agency that is in charge of the European education and training programs. The “Grensverleggers” event that took place on 16 January 2015 in the Flemish Parliament in Brussels is the annual key moment where the Flemish education and training community reflects on the achievements of the past year with regard to internationalisation in the domain. This year the emphasis was on the aspects “dissemination and exploitation of project results”. During their keynote address, Sally Reynolds and Mathy Vanbuel reflected on the experience that ATiT has gathered in this domain over the last 15 years, referring to projects ranging from Schoolsat over MEDEAnet to Web2LLP and iPro. In the afternoon, Sally and Mathy collaborated with a small group of practitioners in a workshop to exchange further experiences and tips and advice. Flemish Minister of Education Hilde Crevits, who again focused on the importance and value of working across borders also in education, closed the meeting.
