Partnership agree that every organization is going to provide two logos created by the students or by the representatives of partners.

Partnership has agreed to pospone the starting date to January 2021 for the challenge proposed by Conecta Software. During the next weeks and until the end of 2020, partners are going to work to set up the challenges with local companies. For this project it not going to be a minimum of students involve on it. Students that are going to work to solve this challenges are from  IT (computer science) and Commerce studies.

An agreement document for the project has been explained and discussed. Most of partners are agree for this document. Coordinator is going to wait for the reply from some partner that need to query internally.

Distribution of tasks proposed by the coordinator partner has been discussed. The main characteristic for the distribution designed is that all partners are going to be involved coordinating tasks like (publishing on social networks, collecting indicators, blog publications and coordinate dissemination activities). It has been one of aspect that was evaluated as a very positive point by our national agency.

Partnership agree to have the next coordinating meeting on 27th January 2021.
