Anna Ochmann, president of ARTeria Foundation, took part in the international seminar „MOV(I)E IT FORWARD!. Dissemination, exploitation and sustainability of KA2 project results”. It was from 8th to 11th May 2019 in Zakopane Poland by the Polish National Agency Erasmus+ Programme. During these few days of work together we tried to find answers to several questions, for instance: how can we ensure durability of projects after the project funding has finished? Which tools can we use? The participants from ten European countries had also a unique opportunity to exchange experiences on the subject of exploitation, sustainability and dissemination of results. At the same time, the event enabled participants to learn inspiring new things and specific, practical competences – a multimedia workshop on recording videos and a visual thinking workshops, as a potential tool for project dissemination, were also a part of the seminar.
The participants of the seminar were first of all Erasmus+ beneficiaries: representatives of on-going projects, as well as those who completed good examples of dissemination and exploitation, representatives of institutions using the results of Erasmus+ projects, and the other stakeholders (e.g. decision makers). Foundation ARTeria presented, among others, project “Bridging the Gap: new mentoring methods for young creative entrepreneurs in Europe”. The specific goals of the seminar were to exchange experience among participants and get contributions from experts on the subject of sustainability, exploitation and dissemination; to exchange good practices, tools, methods and approaches in sustainability, exploitation and dissemination; to prepare recommendations for future Erasmus+ beneficiaries on efficient ways of exploiting and sustaining results.
