Article 18: VIBES Erasmus+ Project pre kick off meeting

The pre kick off meeting for our VIBES Erasmus+ Sport project (Virtual reality sports Interaction Between European Schools) (GA number: 101133143) was held virtually on the 22nd of December 2023, with the participation of all consortium partners.

The meeting commenced with a comprehensive overview of the VIBES project, setting the stage for our journey ahead. Partners discussed the initial actions required and engaged in planning the upcoming kick-off meeting in Brussels.

Highlight of the Day: We wrapped up with an exhilarating surprise from our coordinator! We are thrilled to announce a significant collaboration with Resolution Games. Their Chief Creative Officer has extended support to VIBES, marking a key step forward for our project. This was celebrated with an exclusive video interview conducted in the VR environment of the Racket Club game!
