Kickoff in the project UP & GO, development of educational training for staff and volunteers working with youth with Down syndrome (DS) or intellectual disabilities , especially in relation to physical activities. The outcome will be a functional continuing education and training package for organisations who works or are interested to work with individuals with DS or intellectual disabilities. This will enhance the possibilities for individuals with DS or intellectual disabilities to participate in sport activities and at the same time have the increased opportunities to become more integrated in our European society, which will contribute to their empowerment.
The training course will be in modular form and will be piloted on staff, youth workers and volunteers in the following partners countries (Sweden, Lithuania, Croatia, Romania)
University of Kristianstad is lead partner: See their web page about project here
Health Innovation, implementation and Impact (HI3) project, with 8 countries in the consortium had the first kickoff meeting in Kristianstad in November 2018 at Kristianstad University. The aim of this project is to develop a training package for health care professionals – clinical and managerial positions – who currently have limited or no training in how to implement and monitor change in their health care setting. As indicated, this issue is a European wide problem. By utilizing a transnational project approach, a functional training material that take account of European social and cultural diversity in various hospital settings will be generated and consequently the developed training material will be more easily adopted and utilised across Europe. Partners come from Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Slovenia and Romania. The consortium includes a combination of “players” in Research, Health Care, NGO and VET, bringing into the project a variety of necessary high-level complementary skills.
