The project kick-off for SNOwMan was held over 2 days at VIA University College in Aarhus in November 2017. The kick-off was attended by all 13 partners and was the first time the SNOwMan partnership all met in person.

After an introductory lunch, the Dean of VIA School of Business, Technology and Creative Industries, Konstantin Lassithiotakis and the project manager of SNOwMan, Susan Dalum bid everyone welcome, and all the participants were introduced.

Afterwards, the keynote speaker Carsten Steno gave an interesting presentation on owner-managed SMEs and the challenges they face. The rest of the day was spent on the responsibilities, activities and budget of the project as well as on the important communication strategy and activities. After a productive and informative day, the partnership enjoyed dinner at Restaurant MellemRum in Aarhus.

First on the agenda on the second day was a presentation on administrative routines of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region. Afterwards, two parallel tracks dealt with preliminary work in the work packages and with the administrative and financial procedures in SNOwMan respectively.

Last on the agenda was the “next step”. Here all participants joined in a fruitful discussion regarding the initial actions, meetings and reporting in the project.

The two days in Aarhus not only provided the partnership with essential information, but also ensured common understanding and valuable networking across borders.
