The kick-off meeting of INCLUDE took place on July 8, 2021, at Instituto Superior de Administração e Línguas (ISAL), on the island of Madeira. After several online meetings, the members of the project assembled in person to discuss the intellectual outputs, select the winner of the logo competition and launch the official website of the project. The day started with an opening session, followed by a brief presentation on the island of Madeira and the host of the meeting, ISAL. Later, the project members assembled all the logos designed by the students within the scope of a logo contest. This competition was aimed only at the students from the three partners institutions. The goal was to include them in the project from the very start, challenging them to design a logo to represent INCLUDE. After much deliberation, the winner was chosen.
The afternoon was dedicated to the launch of the project website and the discussion of the intellectual outputs 1 (Needs analysis – Improving communication skills in a digital, international environment) and 2 (Course curriculum – Intersectoral communication skills in a digital, intercultural environment).
