Project Kick-off Meeting

2nd Transnational Meeting

The second transnational meeting of the ESCAPE project took place in Cologne on 3 and 4 December 2021.

After the first project meeting in spring, which had to be held completely online due to the pandemic, it was now possible to hold at least a hybrid meeting at which the majority of the partners could attend in person.

The focus of the meeting was to give all partners a better overview of the status quo. In particular, all partners were able to take a look at the first completed puzzle boxes for the first time and gain a first joint, intensive ESCAPE room experience. For this purpose, the partners solved a complex Escape story, partly with the help of the hosts.

The meeting was a complete success. The next personal transnational meeting will take place on 11 March 2022 in Innsbruck.

Drittes Transnationales Meeting

On 10 and 11 March 2022, the ESCAPE consortium met for the third transnational meeting in Innsbruck.

For the first time since the beginning of the project, it was now possible for all participating partners to come together in person.

During the meeting, the partners focused on the refinements of the puzzle boxes, especially in connection with the already developed cover stories.
Furthermore, the innovations of the puzzle boxes were tested together and transfers to contexts relevant to education were discussed.
In the course of the meeting, the partners self-critically admitted that the project topic and the joint and qualitatively demanding further development could have taken a few more days. It was agreed to intensify this exchange bilaterally.

The partners are now looking forward to the “Learning, teaching and training days” in Vicenza from 3 to 7 October. During these days, the partners’ staff will be trained in the implementation of mobile real Escape Rooms as an innovative teaching method in vocational training.

Learning, teaching and training days

From October 3 to 7, 2022, the “learning teaching training activities” (LTTA) of the project took place. Within the framework of this, the partners’ staff was trained on the production of the materials and the implementation of the Mobile real Escape Rooms as an innovative teaching method in vocational education.

Above are a few impressions from the days of “learning teaching training activities” (LTTA) in Vicenza, Italy. They were productive, educational and interesting – and fun was not neglected either.

Fourth Transnational Meeting

The fourth and thus last transnational project meeting took place on 13/14 January 2023 in Liège, Belgium.

During the meeting, the partners focused on the project tasks still to be completed. Deadlines were set in order to still be able to manage the schedule for the completion of the results within the time frame.

In particular, the partners paid special attention to the planning of the multiplier events, which were planned for February 2023 in all partner countries.

Multiplier event

On 11 February 2023, the multiplier event of the German partners for the project took successfully place in the HOPE Hub of the Rheinflanke on the grounds of the ESV Olympia Cologne.

We were guests at the Olympic Stadium in Cologne for an entire Saturday and were able to present the Mobile Real Escape Rooms to many interested visitors. The puzzle boxes and their possible uses could be tried out and examined. The visitors, including pupils, parents, teachers and entrepreneurs, were extremely interested and enthusiastic. The event was a complete success!
