The first Strategic Board Meeting of the POW-BRIDGE project was held in Belgrade (online setting) on September 29, 2020. The event brought together members of the Strategic Board composed of representatives of social partners and public authorities in the eight countries participating in the project, i.e. Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Serbia, and North Macedonia. The aim of the Strategic Board is to introduce Strategic Board members with the project and its methodology for identifying the gaps through research; elicit feedback on the work done until September; ask for support to finalize the research and build the ground for the first Mutual Learning Lab to be held in November this year. The Strategic Board Meeting was followed by a Steering Group Meeting, where project coordinators were discussing the progress of the project and upcoming activities.
