WP1 encompasses a range of preparatory activities for the development and implementation of the project. The pre-application need assessment had demonstrated that the partners have interest and sufficient initial capacity to implement the action and to achieve sustainable results, however due to a year-long lag between the pre-application assessment and the projected start of the action, a new and a more detailed survey will be carried out, as the institutional landscape is very dynamic in all the PCs, and we will need more details from the end-users and HEIs in order to complete the ToRs describing the development of institutional and learning infrastructure, and the INTENSE in- and post- project business and dissemination plan.
