This edition was hosted by Insignare Fátima Hospitality School and gathered participants from Italy, Albania and Greece.
It was targeted to teachers and staff operating in Hospitality VET institutes with particular regards to those teaching IT, food processing, tourism subjects and to those involved in students mobility projects.
The partners designed the event to be an occasion to discuss how VET Hospitality Institutes can offer training solution in step with the times with regards of digital and technological revolution.
During four days they tackled this challenge by exploring scenarios, exchanging competences and techniques for undertaking a cross–disciplinary lens and integrate STEM disciplines in Hospitality subjects.
