Activities was distributed to dedicated task teams, whose progress and quality was reported to Grant applicant, central project management, quality and dissemination teams. P5 and P6 partners was hosted staff of Tunisian partners for passing the FST expertise and show lab capacities/methods. P1 to P4 achieve a case study using novel teaching tools and meeting to disseminate how to use and practice the novel teaching tools in Tunisian universities.

All of the above is planned to aid the core development activity-modernization of existing and production of new teaching materials and tools, for the target Tunisian groups.
