The Synergy Sessions in Zagreb will facilitate the sharing of practices, project outputs and research findings, offer the participants platform to develop new ideas and plans, to create new partnerships by engaging  in highly interactive working group activities during parallel sessions. It focuses on

  • the identification of basic points of synergy amongst a broad palette of presenting initiatives and participants
  • the elaboration of future collaboration roadmaps.

The list of the short introductions (submitted in previously) are available on the website and will be published in the CC licensed Book of Projects.

What happens in the Synergy Sessions?

The sessions kick off with the Fairgrounds. During a number of dedicated sessions all the practice/project promoters can briefly (5 min) introduce their practices and then talk and interact with each other at will. The Fairgrounds serve to discover basic points of synergies among the projects and practices.

The Fairgrounds lead to the Working group (WGs) activities. These WGs support clustering the presented practices and projects along the following themes:

  1. Synergy WG: Inspiring teaching practices and competence development for ubiquitous learning

  2. Synergy WG: The role of ICT and digital competencies in excluded / at risk groups' lives
  3. Synergy WG: E-learning solutions for vocational education and training
  4. Synergy WG: E-learning courses to support businesses and employment

Each participant is free to join any of the WGs, or form a new one. The aim of the working groups is to elaborate on the potentials and practical details of the identified Fairground synergies and develop future collaborations. The WGs will have a facilitator and a notary to support meaningful collaboration. The WGs have their own online collaborative space in the above Pages and a dedicated virtual shared post-it board (
