On the 4th and 5th of February, the kick-off event took place at the university in Bamberg. Every partner from Germany,
Norway, the Czech Republic and Portugal were represented. A goal of the meeting was achieving a common understanding of the project aims and to collectively introduce the first content. To do so,
it was important to gain insight in the currently differing concepts of University Schools, so every partner introduced themselves and their present concepts. In addition, Mr. Jochen
Hofman,head of the Department for Vocational Schools and Teacher Education, of the
Bavarian Ministry of Education, gave an introduction to the Bavarian school system and the Bavarian University School concept. A visit at the Vocational School III in Bamberg provided the
participants with insight in the collaboration and joint projects of the same and the University of Bamberg.
