The partners met face-to-face for the first time in Odense, Denmark, on 26th – 28th October 2022. They presented their regions and organizations. Several workshops were organized so as to discuss in detail all work packages. In addition, planning phase documents were debated and approved. Two presentations, followed by discussions, were delivered: Industry and policy perspectives: sustainability competencies challenges and opportunities presented by Tim Vermund, and Sustainability actions and the 2030 agenda presented by Flemming Bridal Rasmussen. The meeting was a great opportunity to share knowledge and experience and build trust among partners.
