Marketing Text Partners involved in the consortium originate from different educational fields: university science education (P0, P6), university technical education (P4), university pedagogical education (P1), vocational schools (P2, P3) and educational agency (P5). Different primary orientations of partners are very important to find common point of mutual interest. Adjusting project proposed jobs on most suitable way for successful completion requires management’s skills and virtue, both organizational and financial.
We can split management strategies in three subsequent levels:
1st level: Developed management strategies before project actually starts. Most important part was finding common partner’s interests in project writing period in order to prepare future activities on more transparent way.
2nd level: Period between the project’s programs were accepted and first (kick-off) meeting which defines main directions for oncoming period until next collaboration meeting ; in our case it was the 1st Annual meeting on Summer school margins.
3rd level: Using consortium meetings as control points with respect to what has been done and plan for period until the next collaboration meeting.
We cycle this form until the end, actually on last consortium meeting in Zagreb in late November 2013 we discussed future modes of collaboration.
Target group Primary partners, secondary the target groups (teachers and students)
Result On margins of INFIRO concluding conference we held a round table dedicated to future partners activities and possibilities of oncoming collaborations. We find that Summer School or Robotics Camps, based on one INFIRO week robotics laboratory curriculum, is a good base for propagating active learning by head and hands among students and teachers whom are technically oriented population.
