November marks an important date for the project – it is the time to start the activity of CybARverse academies. For this purpose, partners from Romania, Malta, and Cyprus made their trips to Vilnius (Lithuania), where project partner from Lithuania association “Langas į ateitį” hosted the meeting.
The meeting was the kick-off of the very important Work Package No. 4 – the foundation and operation of four CybARverse Academies in each partner country. During two productive days in November, partners engaged in fruitful discussions about the future CybARverse academies and decided the next steps to be taken.
