Four field monitoring visits were implemented at the beginning of 2019 to the partner-country HEIs. Representatives of the programme-country universities met with institutional stakeholders to discuss the list of courses which the participants in the training were developing and set the schedule for their piloting during the second project year.  They also discussed the implementation of the major project events until the end of the project and in particular the two dissemination conferences and summer school for PhD students and junior faculty.
