CEIPES, beside on all the project, will particularly focus on the quality assurance and evaluation, the realization of the web platform design and the leading of the production of educational spot videos for families.
During the KOM, the partners presented each other and discussed about the project steps and its results, especially on the development of the methodology and the action plan of the toolkit on how to train parents and legal guardians of ageing adults with disabilities.
In the next months, the partners will finally meet in presence for the second transnational meeting, right here in Palermo!
