29-30 November 2022 | Groningen
The second transnational partner meeting of eWBL (Work Based Learning) project was hosted by the University of Groningen from 29-30 November. After more than 10 months of working online, the project partners had the chance to meet in person for the first time in the beautiful city of Groningen.
The meeting brought together representatives from FH Münster University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini S.r.l. SB (FGB) (Italy), Ca'Foscari University of Venice (Italy), and Momentum (Ireland).
The meeting represented an important milestone for the project as it marked the successful completion of the first work package which included an extensive interview of over 79 work-based learning stakeholders (i.e., university admin officers & educators, company supervisors & mentors, and students) who participated in an online or hybrid work-based learning activity.
The interviews were translated in to 5 national reports representing the partner countries (i.e., Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Ireland, and Slovenia) and one synthesis report summarizing all the major findings.
The partners discussed the major insights from the large-scale study as well as how best to disseminate the five national reports and the final synthesis report across the EU.
Furthermore, the remaining three work packages i.e., eWBL framework development, eWBL toolkit & OERs development and capacity building program design were discussed.

About eWBL project
eWBL (Work Based Learning) is an Erasmus + project coordinated by the Science to Business Marketing Research Center of FH Münster University of Applied Sciences. The project brings together 6 partners across the EU: University of Groningen (Netherlands), Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini S.r.l. SB (FGB) (Italy), Ca'Foscari University of Venice (Italy), Momentum (Ireland), and Ljubljana University (Slovenia).
The project focuses on how work-based learning competences could be fostered in the absence of a physical environment. As the work environment is increasingly shifting to online and hybrid formats, ways of making work-based learning effective in this new environment has become an urgent need of educators across the EU. The project addresses this specific need by developing frameworks, tools, and guidelines that educators in HE (lecturers, trainers, and administrative staff) could use to deliver high-quality eWBL.
