The kick-off meeting for the PACES project took place at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 22-25 January 2018.

The first two days of the meeting were used for project coordination and planning; the second two days of the meeting were used for the demonstration and sharing of good practice by the University of Macedonia and affiliates. These included sessions on student peer support strategies, employment practices, working with students with communication issues, and a visit to the UOM library’s accessibility workstation for students with visual impairments.

 The event focused on two work packages:

WP8 – Coordination of the project, including the setting up of the management structure, overseeing project progress and reviewing all deliverables and outputs.

WP1 – (specifically WP1.2) Good practice site visits to two EU institutions (University of Macedonia, Greece, and Coventry University, UK) attended by all North African partners.
