Final meeting in Dortmund

 

 

The final CoMeth meeting took place in Dortmund between 25th June and 27th June 2014.

During those three days of the final meeting the delegations of the CoMeth project partners spoke about the development of projects, the production of the end products such as "Book of Ideas" and their thoughts regarding the cooperation during the process of project’s implementation.

In particular, project partners discussed the possibilities of transferring best practices to other organization’s culture. Partners considered which conditions must be fulfilled in order to implement particular method and what aspects have to be taken into account. Also, cultural differences between project partners were the subject of the discussion. Partners also wondered if it makes sense to alter the original method and implement it in other organization and what aspects should be taken into consideration in such case.

During stimulating and intensive discussions it became clear that all project partners have a big interest in learning from others’ organization’s experiences and to use their methods in order to develop each organization’s further work and growth.

The further development of the "Book of Ideas" (one of the CoMeth final products) was an excellent example of an extremely successful European cooperation. It has shown that the different experiences, the cultural contexts and singular methods used by particular partners resulted in creation of objective and transnational solution in the field of education. Discussions between partners turned out to be very wide-ranging and constructive and lead to a successful cooperation in terms of final products which shall be seen on the CoMeth web page.

The summary of the project’s results conducted by all project partners on the last day of the final meeting has shown that participation in the project has widely influenced all involved organizations especially in terms of the way they work with parents, children and teachers. Participation in the project also allowed partners to see new possibilities, concepts and methods in the context of that work. Also, opportunity to work in the international team of experts allowed the partners to broaden their horizons and deepen their understanding of the conditions of life and work in particular countries. All partners agreed that the work at the international level is important in every aspect and highly contributes to the idea of European cooperation supported by the European Commission though financing projects such as CoMeth.
