POOLS3. Europemobility Networks International Conference in Brussels
On the 26th of November Pools 3 project was presented at the 2nd Europemobility Network International Conference in Brussels. With 114 registered participants and several keynote speakers, the conference gathered together mobility coordinators and key actors in the field of mobility from 24 countries. Paul Tzimas from the European Commission presented the contents of the Key Action 1 of Erasmus+ to underlie the importance of the students’ and young people mobility. Stefan Jahnke, the President of Erasmus Student Network stressed the added value on employment of learning mobility. Søren Kristensen, Techne director, highlighted the new target groups in international mobility actions, i.e. young people with fewer o opportunities. With a choice of several roundtable discussions, each focusing of different key topics in learning mobility, and a set of parallel workshops tackling quality and cooperation models, funding schemes, impact assessment and recognition, the conference offered a wide variety of opportunities to mobility coordinators to discuss about relevant issues in learning mobility, to learn and to network. The conference represented an excellent opportunity to announce and publish forthcoming peer-learning clubs’ activities, open to all Europemobility network members. One of the most exciting moments of the conference was the Video Contest 2013 ceremony where 6 young European mobile learners were awarded.
