Finally, the consortium met in person in the stunning location of the Tuscia University in Viterbo. Although we are at the very initial stage, this occasion was key both to establish a collaborative approach and to outline the next steps of the project.
After the project overview carried out by our coordinator Professor Paola Vocca, we focused on an in-depth presentation of the management tool that we are going to use all along the project life cycle, thus ensuring that the whole process will proceed smoothly.
The implementation journey of the Joule project consists of a five-steps roadmap. During this transnational meeting we had the chance of presenting the results of the first Projects Results (PR1): “The Journalism and data science skills inventory“, made possible by the desk research and analysis of the state of the art of Data-Driven training programs in Higher Education in the European context and beyond.
Lastly, the consortium discussed the communication and dissemination plans and introduced the PR2, namely the design and development of new and innovative data journalism courses based on the insights emerged from PR1.
