The Open Event in Spain
November 30th, 2022
Just before the end of 2022, Cowork4YOUTH’s second Open Event for the year, organised by one of the project’s partners, ISEAK, took place. The venue of BBK Kuna in beautiful Bilbao in Spain hosted the Event, and various stakeholders experienced in tackling youth unemployment also attended.
Professor Sara de la Rica, director at ISEAK, addressed the opening speech and was followed by the Principal Investigator of Cowork4YOUTH, Assistant Professor Vasilis Avdikos, and Dr Adele Wheelan, researcher from the Economic Social and Research Institute – ESRI. Professor de la Rica talked about the establishment of ISEAK in 2018 and its aim to generate knowledge and transmit it to the society. She underlined the need to give answers to problems and noted that the Open Event is a great opportunity to proceed in creating bridges between researchers and practitioners. Professor de la Rica also talked about her concern about the future of employment, and how the Event could be successful in terms of showing and discussing results produced by the current research in the framework of the project.
The Open Event speeches were followed by very fruitful discussions between the participants and the plenty of attendees.
