Our 4th Transnational Meeting in Germany!

SWING project is proceeding very well!

On 26th and 28th of November 2019 the 4th Transnational Meeting of the SWING project took meeting took place in Nuremberg, in the headquarter of the German partner, FAU – University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg).

We are very happy for the work done on these days, everything continues right on schedule.

This ERASMUS+ project is aimed to create a dictionary of 4 sign language (Italian, Spanish, German and Hungarian), usable and accessible to all through a web platform and a mobile app.

The partners involved in the implementation of this project are: the coordinators FEDERSID from Italy, CETEM (Spain), ILI (Germany)  CEIPES (from Italy, too) and Munka-KörAlapítvány (Hungary).

Following the schedule, the meeting was the occasion to check the status of work about the web platform that will be ready in the following weeks and the mobile application. The output leader is CETEM for the platform and in the designing of the mobile app, the output leader is ILI.

These days, dedicated to the meeting, have been very productive and the partners had the opportunity to verify that the work is proceeding successfully.

Moreover, it was a good occasion to know a good pratice in Nuremberg. The VET school BBW is very active in the field of training for students with disabilities, too, in culinary, tourism and furniture.

Thanks to ILI partners, from FAU university, we had the occasion to know closely this practice.

The good relation and the great collaboration between the partners play for sure an important role in the ambitious achievement of the relevant objectives.

We can see the incredible results of these products and we are looking forward to present this outputs at the next and last transnational meeting in Palermo.
