Project Meeting in Copenhagen, June 27, 2017

All project partners of the Erasmus+ project “Understanding Pensions in Europe” met in Copenhagen for one day to discuss implementation of the first online course “Understanding Pensions in Europe – An Introduction”. Many videos have already been produced, a course structure set up and implemented for testing purposes, as well as several javascript applets and an “UNPI” R-library, which is available on github. Final video production and cutting will be done during the summer and the first test period will be Winter 2017/2018.

On the second part of the meeting, the general structure of the second online course “Pension Finance and Personal Pension Planning – Advanced Topics” was discussed and specifications for the necessary software implementation developed.

All participants considered the meeting to be successful and the whole project to be well within schedule! Thanks to all participants and the organizers for their great work!
