2015_Barcelona_expertssjpgEBE-EUSMOSI invited European experts to its first European event:

On June 25th, the first European meeting of EBE-EUSMOSI took place at Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona. The event saw a wide audience attending, ranging not only from the involved teachers and the EBE-EUSMOSI teams, but also from other stakeholders, such as further teachers, researchers and students. All of them were interested in the topics of school inclusion, evidence-based education, Prosociality and Social and Emotional Learning and were coming from all fields, from education to psychology. One keynote speaker was Dr. Alan Bruce, Director of Universal Learning System, who gave a very deep and insightful speech not just about learning and education, but society and the times we are living in, thus setting the EBE-EUSMOSI initiative in a wider framework.

Finally, the first transnational EBE-EUSMOSI meeting took place which was attended by all EBE-EUSMOSI partners: They were coming from University of Perugia (Dr. Annalisa Morganti – Project Coordinator), University of Udine (Dr. Lucio Cottini), Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (Dr. Robert Roche), University of Zagreb (Dr. Annamarija Zic Ralic), University of Ljubljana (Dr. Janez Vogrinc), and the Open University on the Netherlands (Dr. Christian M. Stracke, via Skype). During the meeting, a strong correspondence between the tasks required by the project and their relating deadlines emerged, highlighting a good tendency in keeping up with the timing of the different activities. The climate between all partners was very good and helped strengthening the collaboration that was already good from the beginning.
