Campus Engage Working Group members, including Sarah Bowman, Trinity College Dublin and Kate Morris, teamed up with Aqua TT to deliver a full day workshop that took place on Wednesday the 6th of December in the Aisling Hotel and was attended by H2020 NCPs from across Europe. The workshop was fully interactive, activity based, with exercises and sharing of NCP experience. It included review of evaluation reports to identify strengths and weaknesses, to inform a scaled up version of the training. The training was very well received with very positive feedback from all attendees.
