A leap to the Horizon – How did we manage?
In November 2017, Anita Narbro took a great leap towards something new and exciting. For the very first time, Turku University of Applied Sciences was about to coordinate a Horizon 2020 project, one that was also described as the best proposal in its application round of the highly competed funding programme.
Four years, dozens of publications, countless emails across Europe, nine co-creation pilots, and one pandemic later, project CoSIE – Co-creation of Service Innovation in Europe, is coming to an end. With an ambitious goal of democratizing decision-making in public services in Europe, the CoSIE project was implemented as a joint venture of 24 partners from 10 EU countries.
Anita, as the administrative project manager, had a key role in making sure the project ran as smoothly as possible from the beginning until the end. So, how did we manage?
