The kick-off meeting of the aTM Project
This week we have organised the Kick-Off meeting of the ERASMUS+ project: 'Promoting Modern Talent Management Practices in Asian Higher Education institutions' (aTM). Twenty-eight faculty and support staff from 6 countries have participated, although most of them were from China and Malaysia.
On the first day, the meeting focused on getting to know each other. To discover the personal and professional expectations of each one, and to identify our motivations. The second day focused on project management: internal communication, external communication, dissemination, financial management, project management, quality management, etc. The third and final day focused on Work Package 1. A small workshop was held with the aim of identifying what each participant understood by talent and talent management in academia.
We also discuss the project's website and social networks. Firstly, the web address is at http://atm.talentinasia.org, And the main social network is twitter with the hashtag #aTMproject.
Next meeting will be hold at Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon (Portugal) between July 1st and 5th, 2019.
