In the period of 14th-17th February 2017, VUM hosted the first BEEHIVE project meeting. The meeting agenda covered issues linked to project management and financial administration. Furthermore, the meeting programme was geared towards the successful start of project activities in Work Package 2. The latter is aimed at fulfilling the project’s first specific objective, namely to map out the progress of universities in Indonesia and the Philippines towards an alignment with the entrepreneurial university concept.

During the last day of the meeting, project partners from the Philippines and Indonesia discussed with the coordinator country specific matters like the equipment tending procedures, staff costs payment modalities etc. Last but not least, for most of the visiting BEEHIVE partners this was the first ever visit to Bulgaria and they got the chance to explore Varna and its surroundings.
