Posted on the 12/06/2018 - The organisations of EXPERTISE have been working in their good practices and met in Bulgaria to learn about design thinking and experiment how to implement this methodology.
From the 6th to the 9th of June 2018 the third transnational meeting (M3) of EXPERTISE has taken place. Two representatives of each partner country and organisation have met in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) to participate on the third transnational meeting of this Erasmus+ initiative and also get to know the best practices of ASPECT on youth training and inclusive skills for employment. On this concrete activity, attendees have discussed about new methods to face the youth challenges of Europe using as a tool and good practice the design thinking method. The design thinking approach is a methodology for practical and creative resolution of problems. It is an interactive process divided in 5 phases focused in the innovation that the people can do in order to get new solutions. To practice this tool, partners have applied during that meeting this method to deal with issues such as the new European law about data protection. The meeting was also used to check the project stages completed at that moment and remind all the bureaucracy needs to submit the interim report of EXPERTISE. Beside this, the meeting allowed partners to prepare its future activities in the six participating countries.
