The H2020 BRIDGES project kicked off its activities with a two-day event on April 21-22, followed by its first interdisciplinary seminar on April 29.
‘BRIDGES assessing the production and impact of migration narratives’ kicked off its activities with a two-day event involving the members of the Consortium and the Advisory Board, as well as representatives from the European Commission and its sister projects.
This is the first event of BRIDGES, a project funded by the EU H2020 Framework Programme for Research & Innovation and implemented by a consortium of 12 universities, research centres, civil society organisations and cultural associations under the coordination of the Barcelona Centre for International Affairs (CIDOB).
During the Kick-off Meeting, the participants discussed the overall goals, methodology and activities of the project, as well as the different work packages and other communication- and management-related aspects. The goal was to get an overview of the project and to build synergies between its partners.
The Kick-off Meeting was complemented by the first BRIDGES interdisciplinary seminar on April 29, when the researchers involved in the project will discuss the theoretical and methodological basis for a truly interdisciplinary work – across disciplines, and between research and practice – throughout the three years of the project.
On this occasion, BRIDGES also launched its Twitter account, managed from CIDOB in close cooperation with the other members of the Consortium.
