On the 5th and 6th of November, the 3rd STICK Project consortium meeting took place in Rotterdam at Erasmus University Rotterdam and Rotterdam Hockey Club.
The partner institutions monitored the progress of the project and approved the Hockey/Academic mobility scheme under the Erasmus+ programme. This is the pilot programme designed to test the scheme in all its phases: the application procedure, along with the selection and nomination procedure. It is expected that the hockey players selected to take part in this pilot programme will make their exchange during next academic year, 2019/20 with any of the consortium partners.
The consortium also planned the following steps: the organisation of five simultaneous events at the five countries with representatives of all sports, in order to share the first results of the project with them, and see how the programme would work with their particular sport.
The Atlètic Terrassa Hockey Club representatives, Mireia Galí, STICK Project Coordinator, Gemma Cirera, Project Manager, and Andreu Enrich, Hockey Coordinator, took the opportunity to track the STICK Project Case Study, Anna Barba.
Anna is an Atlètic Terrassa Hockey Club player that is currently studying at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, and plays in the ladies’ first team at H.C. Rotterdam.
Next meeting will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, in February 2019.
