The first transnational meeting of all partner organizations took place on November 30, 2017 in Bugibba, Malta.
All partners introduced their organizations and their interest in the project. Important dates, deadlines and tasks were set.
A presentation on 3D Printing for Adult Education was delivered by MECB. An overview of digital skills gap was given, then followed by 3D printing technology. Various applications of 3D Printing technology were also explained.
The partners were also given an overview of EuDA’s successfully implemented KA2 project related to 3D printing in education – PRINT STEM (Pedagogical Resources IN Teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The purpose of this project was to develop, including through the transfer and adaptation of best practices from partner countries that have already experienced in their effectiveness within their school systems, training programs and related devices for use replicable 3D printers (a technology that enables three-dimensional printing of objects, starting from a graphic representation in 3D), for encourage innovation in teaching in secondary schools.

Every partner organization gave a presentation on the intellectual outputs. There will be six intellectual outputs, every partner is responsible for one of them, except EuDA (responsible for two of them).
Project management and rules for communication among partners were discussed, as well as the dates of the next meetings.
