Il Premio Label Europeo delle Lingue 2022 è stato vinto dal progetto “Sharing European Architectural Heritage: Innovative language teaching tools for academic and professional mobility in Architecture and Construction” (SEAH; www.seahproject.eu), coordinato dalla professoressa Mariapia D’Angelo, Docente di Didattica delle Lingue moderne, in collaborazione con le professoresse Maria Chiara Ferro e Sara Piccioni, tutte del Dipartimento di Lingue, Letterature e Culture Moderne dell’Università degli Studi “Gabriele d’Annunzio” di Chieti-Pescara, capofila del Progetto in partenariato con gli Atenei di: Bordeaux-Montaigne (Francia), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spagna), Università Statale di Polotsk (Bielorussia) e Masaryk University (Repubblica Ceca), assieme a Internet Web Solutions, Málaga (Spagna). Il prestigioso riconoscimento di qualità per i Progetti Erasmus+ nella promozione dell’eccellenza nell’insegnamento delle lingue a firma del ministro dell’Università, Anna Maria Bernini, assegnato in passato a importanti Atenei italiani, è stato conferito alla “d’Annunzio” dai rappresentanti dell’INAPP (Istituto Nazionale per l’Analisi delle Politiche Pubbliche) e quelli dell’INDIRE (Istituto Nazionale Documentazione Innovazione Ricerca Educativa). La cerimonia di premiazione si è svolta nei giorni scorsi a Roma, a conclusione dell’evento dedicato al “Programma Erasmus+ 2021-2027 verso la valutazione di medio periodo. European Vocational Skills Week – European Year of Skills 2023”, ed è stato ospitato presso l’Istituto Nazionale per le Politiche Pubbliche (INAPP). <Tra gli aspetti di maggiore valore evidenziati nelle motivazioni del conferimento del Label Europeo - spiega la professoressa Mariapia D’Angelo - figura il carattere innovativo della metodologia ideata per la didattica del linguaggio specialistico dell’Architettura e delle Costruzioni in lingua italiana, francese, spagnola, tedesca e russa. In settore d’intervento è stato scelto per la mancanza di risorse linguistiche digitali open access nelle cinque lingue del progetto, ma la metodologia implementata può essere replicata anche per l’insegnamento di altri linguaggi specialistici, a sostegno della mobilità sia studentesca sia lavorativa. A nome del gruppo che ha curato il progetto SEHA, - sottolinea la professoressa D’Angelo -ringrazio il professor Claudio Varagnoli e i suoi Colleghi del Dipartimento di Architettura della “d’Annunzio” per il supporto fornito nell’individuazione delle esigenze formative degli incoming students nonché nella raccolta dei testi autentici. Un ringraziamento speciale - conclude la professoressa D’Angelo - va al dottor Glauco Conte e a tutto il Settore Internazionalizzazione ed Erasmus per il management del progetto, portato a termine con successo nonostante le difficili e complesse contingenze legate al conflitto in Ucraina>.
Partners from Polotsk State University held the event for the dissemination of the SEAH-project among the academic departments that were not involved and in order to share the results of the work done and to make them available for linguists from other universities and educational institutions. The results of the project were presented and common elaboration of strategies for interdisciplinary development of materials and corresponding parts of the curriculum were shown in the form of presentations of the involved staff of SEAH project and round-table discussions. On April 21, the work was held within the framework of the round table “Possibilities of Corpus Linguistics in Language Teaching: Methodological Tools”. Svetlana Liasovich and Natalia Nester told about the process of the creation the Russian language corpus with professional orientation Architecture and Construction. Then, colleagues from other universities shared their experience of research work in the field of corpus linguistics and methodological tools for working with corpora. Liudmila Rychkova - a leading researcher in the field of corpus linguistics in the Republic of Belarus, among those Russian colleagues who initiated the creation of a module for regional and foreign press of the National Corpus of the Russian Language - took part in the seminar online. The second day of the seminar on April 22 was full of interactive activities: participants were divided into teams; each of them was creating a new non-existent object of architectural heritage using the architectural terminology and SEAH Corpora with the help of words and colored paper. The teams were able to get to know the architecture of Polotsk better and update the methodological tools that were discussed the previous day during the architectural quest around Polotsk. The third day was dedicated to a guided tour of the city's monuments. The event brought together scientific workers from different universities: Vitebsk State University P.M. Masherov, Belarusian State University, Minsk State Linguistic University, Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno, Francisk Skorina Gomel State University, Baranovichi State University, MITSO, as well as the Higher School of Economics (Moscow). Students of the specialties Russian as a foreign language and Architecture also became the participants of the seminar. The event was immediately (on April 25) publicised on the Polock State University website (https://www.psu.by/en/news-events/events/seah-architecture-of-linguistic-creative).
Next 16th November 2022 at 4 PM, the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid will present the SEAH project in room 406 of the Facultad de Ciencias de la Actividad Física y del Deporte (INEF) at the Science Week 2022. The Science Week of Madrid is a popular event organized by madri+d Foundation for Knowledge that provideactivities to show the work carried out by researchers, their projects, motivation and efforts. This event allows society to learn about the latest breakthrough in science and to make issues that concern available for the citizens. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid actively participates in this event held annually and this year the UPM team participating in the SEAH project will present all the innovative outcomes of this E+KA203 Erasmus+ project. The SEAH (Sharing European Architectural Heritage) project promotes the teaching of Spanish in architecture and construction (AC) for international students through innovative language teaching tools. It aims to foster academic and professional students’ mobilities in the field of architecture and construction through: - The creation of a AC linguistic corpus of one million words in each language. - The design of didactic units of five modules in each language (Spanish, French, Italian, Russian and German). The modules, designed by the Spaniard team from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), that will be presented are: • Viviendas sostenibles (Sustainable housing) • Las ciudades y sus infraestructuras (Cities and their infrastructures) • Rehabilitación de edificios antiguos (Rehabilitation of old buildings) • Instalaciones deportivas y naturaleza urbana (Sports facilities and urban nature) • Presentación oral eficaz de un proyecto arquitectónico (Effective oral presentation of an architectural project) This project was awarded in October 2020 and funded by the ERASMUS + Strategic partnership (E+KA203) programme led by the Università degli Studi 'G. d'Annunzio' Chieti - Pescara (Italy), through the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with five European universities: Université Bordeaux Montaigne (France), Masarykova Univerzita (Czech Republic), Polotsk State University (Belarus), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) and Internet Web Solutions (Spain).
On the 29th of September 2022, the SEAH project partners from Università degli Studi 'G. d'Annunzio' Chieti, Université Bordeaux Montaigne, Masaryk University, Polotsk State University and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Internet Web Solutions gathered face-to-face for the final project meeting and the Multiplier Event in Pescara (Italy). The coordinator team from Università degli Studi 'G. d'Annunzio' Chieti organized a Multiplier Event to present all the resources authored by the international SEAH project team to Erasmus+ mobility students and to high-schools Architecture and Construction teachers and students. Official Institutional greetings inaugurated the Multiplier Event and then a round table about the sustainability and future use of the deliverables followed. Great enthusiasm from the public aroused and students started surfing the Platform. The IT partners Internet Web Solutions from Spain responsible of the development of the OER SEAH platform: https://www.seahproject.eu/index.php presented its Functionalities and Potential and provided also report on the total visits since the website opening thanks to an effective SEO strategy and functional dissemination activities. Highly important was the role of associated partners involved in the whole duration of the project such as the Instituto Cervantes, Associazione LEM-Italia, Università la Sapienza di Roma, DILLE - Società Italiana di Didattica delle lingue e Linguistica educative and so on. A very detailed presentation of the learning platform (called learning corner), comprehensive of each type of exercise presented in the learning units was the core of the Multiplier Event. Participants were amazed by the digital presentation of the units to international students in the field of Architecture and Construction.
Project partners amazed and proud to launch the innovative language didactic units they authored in Spanish, Russian, German, Italian and French. The SEAH didactic units -5 for each language and in total 25- have been open to public and are currently available in the ‘Language Course’ section of the SEAH OER Platform: https://www.seahproject.eu/learning.php The qualified team from Università degli Studi 'G. d'Annunzio' Chieti, Université Bordeaux Montaigne, Masaryk University, Polotsk State University and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Internet Web Solutions authored the units in Italian, French, Spanish, German and Russian in order to address the entire EU geographic area covered by the consortium and even further away, thanks to the availability of Russian contents that helps to spread the project impact also in non-EU areas. There are no dedicated platforms and free multilingual educational tools in the field of Architecture and Construction suited to the needs of users. The contents have been designed by experts in each training area after a careful needs analysis and continuous interdisciplinary consultations with a final thorough and effective fine-tuning. Each course is accompanied by an introductory video and an audio description and automatic reading of the texts and activities, so as to be accessible for the visually impaired. Digital and green are the fundamental pillars of the European Green Deal's objectives and guidelines that focus on sustainability and the use of digital. The SEAH Platform is totally designed and architected to maximize digital: in fact, there is no need to print any resources in hard copy format; on the contrary, each unit includes activities such as listening to text, True or False exercises, Translation, Linguistic reflections, Glossary flashcards/ crosswords/ matching pictures to the corresponding definition and even more.

Women in Architecture with a Vision of the Future The introduction was followed by four talks on the topic of the project. The first lecture, given by Carmen Espegel, Professor of Architectural Projects, was entitled: “New architecture in old industrial architecture”. Then, Margarita de Luxán, Professor of Graphic Ideation gave her presentation on “The complex letter C”. The third lecture, “Use of the SEAH Corpus for the teaching of specialized language in architecture and construction”, was given by Valentina Castrignanò, from the Università degli Studi ‘G. d’Annunzio’, Chieti (Italy). Next, Ruth Rodríguez Cuadrado, cultural journalist, presented, “The title of a project: where words add value”. Finally, María Luisa Escribano Ortega, from the Vice-Rectorate for Internationalization, and Dr. Paloma Úbeda Mansilla presented the course outline and the didactic units designed within the framework of this project, through the SEAH project website. About the Project The objective is to create academic and professional language modules for French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish as a foreign language in the field of Architecture and Construction (AC), in order to encourage student mobility and to improve the results of mobility programs. The SEAH project has two parts. The first is the creation of an AC corpus of one million words, in each of the languages mentioned above, for foreign language learners. The second is the didactic development of the corpus with five thematic modules in each language. This project is being carried out and managed by the Università degli Studi ‘G. d’Annunzio’ Chieti-Pescara (Italia), through the Department of Languages, Literatures and Modern Cultures with European partners. Apart from the University in charge, five European universities and a technological partner participated in the project: Université Bordeaux Montaigne (France), Masarykova Univerzita (Czech Republic), Polotsk State University (Belarus), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) and Internet Web Solutions (Spain).
On the 8th of July 2022, the SEAH project partners gathered online for the 8th working project meeting. The meeting, originally planned face-to-face- was related to the final units of IO3, the testing and finalisation of learning objects, the forthcoming multiplier event and the deadlines of the project final stages. After the official greetings and some internal management, administration and communication points, the coordinator team presented the reports of the testing phase for the first 4 units of each language and of the video presentations with also an overview of the fifth unit, recently available in the OER platform. It followed a very detailed presentation of the learning platform (called learning corner), comprehensive of each type of exercise presented in the learning units by Internet Web Solutions, the IT partner of the project. Partners shared a deep emotional moment as the final results for international students in the field of Architecture and Construction. The meeting followed with a detailed report of the first SEAH project Multiplier Event. Indeed on 5th July, the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid (ETSAM) hosted the Multiplier Event and Dra. Paloma Úbeda Mansilla from the Spanish Board Team of UPM told that it was a successful moment to disseminate the work of this innovative European project and to reflect on the Spanish specific language of architecture and construction with International students. The last Multiplier Event will be organized by the UdA- team at the Language Department at the University of Pescara and it is scheduled on the 29th September 2022 (11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.) for both in-person and online participants.
On the 25th of March 2022, the SEAH project partners from Università degli Studi 'G. d'Annunzio' Chieti, Université Bordeaux Montaigne, Masaryk University, Polotsk State University and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Internet Web Solutions gathered online for the 7th working project meeting. The agenda previously shared and agreed among the consortium was mainly related to the presentation of the learning platform and to the digital display of the first language didactic unit, designed step by step by colleagues in Italian, French, Spanish, German and Russian. After the greeting of the coordinator and some internal management, administration and communication points, Internet Web Solutions, the IT partners from Spain responsible of the development of the OER SEAH platform: https://www.seahproject.eu/index.php provided a report on the total visits since the website opening thanks to an effective SEO strategy and functional dissemination activities. It followed a very detailed presentation of the learning platform (called learning corner), comprehensive of each type of exercise presented in the learning units. Partners were amazed by the digital presentation of the units they authored tailored to international students in the field of Architecture and Construction. A new template for the fifth IO3 units was submitted to all the partners and presented by Paloma from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. It was based on a short presentation (an elevator pitch) to be done by the students, based on a spidergram that will be implemented in the platform soon. It will be followed by listening and writing exercises, related to the intended pitch. Mariapia from Ud’A informed the partners also about an upcoming special issues of a linguistics journal «RILA [RASSEGNA ITALIANA DI LINGUISTICA APPLICATA]», dedicated to SEAH. Every team is invited to submit abstract proposals and also to organise Multiplier Events aimed at illustrating methodology, Intellectual Outputs and general objectives of the SEAH-Projects to scholars, incoming and outgoing students in the fields of Corpus Linguistics, Language Teaching, Architecture and Construction, professionals both in the fields of Architecture and Construction, and in that of specialized translation and tourism.
On 16 November 2021 SEAH project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme (Action KA203) written and managed by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with 5 European partners from Italy, Spain, France, Czech Republic and Belarus joined a online project meeting, due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. The core of the meeting was mainly related to the creation of teaching units planned under the Intellectual Output 3. Each module will consist of 5 Units uploaded in https://www.seahproject.eu and tested by Erasmus students. During the meeting, starting from a real unit created in Italian, coordinators introduced all the planned modules’ structure, with related exercises, table of Contents, Learning Objectives, external resources, and so on. A long, participated, and fruitful dialogue took place among all the partners, about how to bring new proposals and integrations, always following the agreed template. SEAH aims at creating academic-professional language modules for French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish as a foreign language in the field of Architecture and Construction in order to encourage student mobilities and to improve the outcomes of mobility programs. Coordinators presented suggestions for activities to be included in an editable final pdf attached to the teaching module. It will be aimed at the creation of a learner-centered glossary, suggesting many possible uses of the IO1 corpora already developed in the previous step of SEAH project. The Multilingual Open Educational Resources Platform for Architecture and Construction https://www.seahproject.eu will work as a self-standing repository of language corpora and training contents presenting them in an easy-to-use and effective way so that users can make the most of this tool. It will be responsive and mobile-friendly in order to boost Dissemination strategies and reach the highest number of users.
On the 1st of July 2021, the SEAH project held a meeting on the Microsoft Teams platform due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting was related to the upcoming deadlines of IO1, the advancement of the OER platform (IO2) and first ideas about IO3. All the files and documents presented at the meeting can be found on the SEAH Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Jx8I6pGpheXKhFyR1XWiIJr5k8vMXw9i?usp=sharing The complete recording of the meeting can be found at: https://web.microsoftstream.com/video/d7e3ba80-a2f8-4b8a-8a2c-ac7955e8192a 7 days before the meeting, the UdA Team acquired the responses to the 2nd Self-Evaluation Questionnaire. The overall opinions about the key activities for IO1, project communication, management and coordination, were mostly good. The results of the questionnaire are available at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1D4Y4pbPB7_fsjj79bMhJYff4_Q3WM76z/view?usp=sharing Reporting Deadlines (Glauco Conte, UdA) Glauco Conte of UdA Team gives notice of the upcoming deadlines and of the report of the first period about IO1 within Seah Project. Slides available at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WzjWE05nX-uC57720XsOUNgGhfnmritU/view?usp=sharing OUTPUT 2: OER Platform & Project Website (Roberta Albertazzi, IWS) Recap of IO2 and an overview of next steps. The public website is now available with different sections. In terms of indexed pages, we have more than one thousand indexed pages. In terms of positioning, we are on page 1 for the open search: Sharing European Architectural Heritage. In terms of statistics, we have more than 12000 visits since the website opening. Roberta gives notice of the online dissemination strategies and actions like press releases on partners’ institutional channels, Youtube channel or Facebook page. She also shows to all participants the functionalities implemented in the SEAH website, such as Documents Section or Community Section. She also shows an easy and intuitive interface for learning contents, which can be useful for future learning activities (multiple choice tests, fill in the blanks). She also sets the next stages within IO2 and IO3. IO1: Progress Report (Sara Piccioni, UdA) Sara’s speech provided a progress report of IO1 technical platform and texts collections. She also provides a new deadline (7th of September) for text collection and gives advices about the transcription methods. There was place for describing some dissemination actions undertaken by all partners. Anna Kupsc (BMU) gently shared with all the partners some important resource for text transcriptions: • https://downsub.com/lang/fr • https://clarin.phonetik.uni-muenchen.de/BASWebServices/interface/ASR Getting ready for IO3 (Mariapia D’Angelo, UdA) Mariapia provides some proposals on training contents and suggestions about the structure of IO3 language learning modules. She shows the example of OLS (Online Linguistic Support), which contains grammar exercises and professional vocabulary, and of the Incorporating Corpora Project. For the possible consultation of this platform, she kindly shared her credentials: OLS usr: email@example.com psw: Mariapia1 It was also suggested that the texts composing the corpora should, at least partially, cover the topics programmed to be used in the teaching material of IO3. Finally, Mariapia gives advice about the Vocabulary Modules in the teaching materials.
Two new press releases regarding the first triannual monitoring meeting of SEAH Erasmus+ Project have been disseminated on the Institutional websites of the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures of the University of D'Annunzio. Another important milestone archieved by this two-year project aimed at encouraging Architecture and Construction student mobility in Europe. Here you can find the news: https://www.unich.it/news/primo-meeting-di-monitoraggio-il-progetto-seah-sharing-european-architectural-heritage https://www.lingue.unich.it/sites/st07/files/seah_february_meeting_department.pdf
On 15th February 2021 SEAH consortium took part in the first triannual monitoring meeting, after the kick-off meeting held in October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting has been realised in online mode on the basis of an agenda developed and shared jointly by all partners. The agenda was scheduled also in line with a questionnaire circulated and filled in by each organization before the online conference. UdA team, as coordinator, welcomed participants and facilitated all the session. The first part of the meeting has been devoted to administrative and communication issues. In particular, they focused on the importance of an incisive and efficient dissemination strategy in order to unify partner’s efforts and boost project’s visibility. Internet Web Solutions, the IT partner from Spain, presented the state of art of the Open Educational Resources platform that is already online at https://www.seahproject.eu/. The second part of the meeting has been devoted to Intellectual Output 1 and each Institution was required to briefly present and share proposals for corpus compilation. Significant steps forward has been taken for the development of language corpora (big databanks) to be loaded on the platform in order to reflect how language is actually used by academics and professionals in the field of Architecture and Construction (AC). The project aims at creating academic-professional language modules for French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish as a foreign language in the field of Architecture and Construction with a view to encourage student mobility and to improve the outcomes of mobility programs. SEAH is a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission which involves a Consortium of 6 Partners from 5 countries (Italy, France, Czech Republic, Belarus and Spain). SEAH-Project platforms’ greatest innovation is that at present there are no OER platforms solely dedicated to multilingual teaching tools in the field of Architecture and Construction tailored on the users needs (in structuring the platform, developing the content, ensuring relevance in terms of access, usability and impact).
The meeting was attended by partners of the four European universities involved in the project (Université Bordeaux Montaigne, Masarykova-Univerzita, Polotsk State University, UniversidadPolitécnica de Madrid), as well as by the UdA team as project coordinator. During the meeting, the consortium discussed how to build large language databases to create online language courses (in Italian, Russian, Spanish, French and German) for Erasmus architecture students. Thanks to those step, partners will be able to develop learning materials, allowing new generations of students to embark on their Erasmus adventure without fear of language barriers!
SEAH... ready... go! On 23 October 2020 SEAH, the co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme (Action KA203) project, written and managed by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with 5 European partners, kicked off. The name SEAH stands for Sharing European Architectural Heritage: innovative language teaching tools for academic and professional mobility in Architecture and Construction. The main objective of the project is to create online language courses (in Italian, Russian, Spanish, French and German) addressed to Erasmus students of architecture. UdA is the project leader, with scientific head Prof. Mariapia D'Angelo of the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, assisted by colleagues Prof. Maria Chiara Ferro and Prof. Sara Piccioni. The project management is entrusted to Glauco Conte and Francesca Vinci of the International Partnership and Cooperation Sector. Four European Universities and one technological partner participate in the project: Université Bordeaux Montaigne (France) Masarykova Univerzita (Czech Republic) Polotsk State University (Belarus) Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) Internet Web Solutions (Spain)
Here a short extract from an interview to Rector of UdA: "For the university - commented the Rector, Sergio Caputi - this is a great success considering that the proposals submitted by universities from all over the world were very numerous and the success rate low. All this is part of our internationalisation project". Maurizio Bertollo, the Rector's delegate for the internationalisation of the University, was present at the conference.
The Italian National Agency Erasmus INDIRE announced the results for both the call for proposals KA107 and KA203. As regards the KA203 call, the Ud’A won a project presented by Prof. Mariapia D'Angelo from the Department of Languages. The project title is "SEAH - Sharing European architectural heritage: innovative language teaching tools for academic and professional mobility in Architecture and Construction" will receive a European contribution of approximately 288,000 Euros. This is a great news for the Univerisity as the lack of proficiency in academic language for the study of the specialist sector often constitutes an obstacle to student mobility and may limit the acquisition of theoretical, technical and professional knowledge during the period of the Erasmus stay in the host institution. The project aims at creating academic-professional language modules for French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish as a foreign language in the field of AC with a view to encourage student mobility and to improve the outcomes of mobility programs.
On January 13th 2021 SEAH participants met online for their second meeting. During the meeting, participants reflected on the design of linguistic corpora – big digital language databanks that will help us create state-of-the-art online foreign language courses in Italian, Spanish, Russian, French and German aimed at Erasmus students in Architecture.
On October 23th 2020, Internet Web Solutions joined the online Kick-Off Meeting of SEAH, a 24-month Project co-funded by the Erasmus Plus Programme of the European Commission, which brings together six Partners from different countries (Italy, Spain, Belarus, Czech Republic, France). The KOM, originally planned to be hosted in the headquarters of the University “Gabriele D'annunzio” Chieti-Pescara (Italy), was held in online mode due to COVID-19 restrictions. The project aims at creating academic-professional language modules for French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish as a foreign language in the field of Architecture and Construction (AC) with a view to encourage student mobility and to improve the outcomes of mobility programs. In fact, the consortium formed by five Higher Education institutions with extensive teaching and research experience in the fields of Applied Linguistics, Teaching Foreign Languages, Corpus Linguistics and Language Learning/Teaching Technology and one private enterprise, Internet Web Solutions (IWS), based in Málaga (Spain) will implement the project’s outputs into two years. In the first year (IO1), SEAH will create language corpora comprising texts representative of professional and academic communication in AC. In the second year (IO3) each partner university will develop online language teaching modules for AC; throughout the project, the IT partner IWS is in charge of Intellectual Output 2 and will develop, test and update the Multilingual Open Educational Resources (OER) platform which will be used to distribute resources created within the project. The project relies on the use of a variety of methods at each stage, including: semi-automatic creation and annotation of language corpora; automatic extraction of linguistic (lexical, morphological, syntactic and pragmatic) features to inform the learning materials; OER-Platform implementation and testing; survey-based methods for data collection and analysis. During the meeting, the consortium discussed about the overall project implementation schedule, defining timelines and respective duties in the following months. In particular, the consortium agreed on the choice of the domain name, the web design, the official logo and the main functionalities of the Multilingual OER platform for Architecture and Construction. IWS is in charge of Intellectual Output 2 and will develop, test and update the Multilingual OER platform which will represent a repository of project’s outputs, results, news and contacts.
