In October 2018 the Consortium met for the fourth MaSDiV project meeting on the sunny island of Malta.
During three days, the partner tandems from six European universities and ministries shared their experiences with the MaSDiV professional development (PD) courses that have been carried out in all countries. What challenges were encountered and how were they tackled? What changed are needed for the final update of the PD course? These are some of the questions that the partners worked on during the meeting. Particularly interesting were also the first results of the pre- post study, which is part of the evaluation of the policy measure.
Dissemination and scaling-up was another focus of the meeting. In workshops and fruitful discussions, the partners worked on ideas of how to reach a broader audience. Important support and high-level expertise was contributed by members of the European Impact Board and Strategic Leader Board – partners from the fields of policy, research and science. After three days of presentations and discussions, the Maltese partner team offered a guided tour through Valetta and informed the team about fascinating stories of the diversified history of Malta.
