FINCODA Joint Meeting 24th - 26th January 2017, Universitat Politècnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain
It was the turn for the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia to host the next joint meeting for all FINCODA members and use the opportunity to present progress of all partner activities related to each of the work packages and deliverables on the project.
We've been busy since the previous partner meeting in Hamburg (September 2016).
Strong Focus on:
- Software application and beta testing
- "Rater" training for self and peer-assessment, feedback and reflection
- Piloting activities in Finland, Spain, Germany, Netherlands and the UK
- Communication activities of the project
- Developing a MOOC
- Tool validation activities
- Project administration
As always, the team at Valencia organised a very successful partner meeting and technical visit to commercial partnerCelestica. Visiting their plant at Pobla de Vallbona, a nearby town close to Valencia city, was very valuable for partners to observe how useful the work being done within the FINCODA project can be for an Organisation such as Celestica.
Since innovation is a priority for operating in the complex environment in which Celestica is settled, having the opportunity of explaining participants this dynamic company’s goals and main activities provided partners a better understanding of their needs as well as a further application of the FINCODA assessment tool in their own organisation.
