Meeting with Ministry of Science and Higher Education representatives

First meeting in the Ministry of Science and Higher Education

The meeting with the representatives from the Implementation and Innovation Department served to introduce the concept and to discuss the possibilities of financing the whole concept from Priority IV PO KL funds; at that time, the activity procedures within Priority IV PO KL were not detailed; therefore, it wasn’t possible to learn whether financing the concept by the priority mentioned would be viable; however, the concept itself was met with high interest; particular attention was paid to the aspect of promoting technical knowledge in middle and upper-secondary schools, as it was noted that aspect was not included in Priority IV until August 2008; another interest-attracting issue was the approach towards the idea of continuing education at higher technical schools; representatives from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education suggested to approach the Ministry of Regional Development in relation to this project.
