On December 9, 2020, the DECODE Sustainability project hosted its formal kick-off meeting. Following a short pre-kickoff meeting held some weeks earlier, the meeting was used to discuss the project’s current activities, major challenges and strategic directions on a more detailed level. The virtually-held meeting replaced a physical meeting that was planned to be held at the University of Naples in Italy. The physical meeting had to be canceled due to the current restrictions that are put in place in the fight against Covid-19.
In engaging discussions, the project partners made major steps forward, especially with respect to the development of the project’s branding, as well as the first Intellectual Output that will be created, namely the development of a Baseline Report on sustainability in higher education, with a focus placed on university faculties, departments and schools.
Following this virtual half-day meeting, consortium members will continue their collaboration on a bilateral basis and meet monthly with the whole consortium - to continue decoding sustainability.
