In the framework of the InnoVal project, a 5-day long staff training took place on 13-17 February 2017 in the premises of UC Leuven-Limburg.
The training delivered by UCLL focused on qualitative data analysis methodologies, data collection and on the conduction of video interviews. Study visits in the city of Leuven and in social enterprises took place. Moreover, synergies with similar projects were explored.
Partners reached a common understanding about key terms and agreed on the methodology to be followed during the selection of innovative, non-traditional assessment methods across Europe. They will reach out to organisations active in the field of validation and conduct interviews in order to analyse the potentially transferable elements of the selected initiatives. A Toolbox of the selected practices will be then developed and published. It will act as an important reference for validation stakeholders and decision-makers.
