The project partners have decided to postpone the physical partner meeting in Bulgaria to January 2021. This has been decided due to the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Europe after the summer holiday season and regarding the duty of care of the lead partner and individual employers. Many companies and government institutions ask their employees to limit or suspend travelling where possible.

The lead partner has therefore decided to keep the dates originally planned and instead hold a series of workshops. These workshops will be used to ensure the progress of the project and to enable stakeholders to participate virtually.

The partners had already planned a virtual partner meeting for 26 August to discuss some context of the partner meeting and progress of the overall activities. That meeting will still take place to discuss preliminaries. Detailed discussions on specific items will then be undertaken in September.
