Welcome and Presentation of the InMEDIATE Project (with Jonathan Barth and Verena Reinecke)
09.00 am – 09.45 am
InMEDIATE is a project funded by the European Union through the Erasmus Plus funding programme 2014-2020 and was developed by a partnership of 7 organizations from Germany, Italy and Poland. The aim of the project ist to establish a European vocational profile for an “International Mediator“. After 30 months the project is coming to a close in March 2023. As an outcome a training curriculum for mediation practitioners was designed, implemented and delivered providing a comprehensive set of certified qualifications, enabling trainees to act as international mediators in cross-border civil disputes. Our conference sets the final point for our project, presenting project results and especially introducing you to our Replicability Toolkit. This toolkit contains the curriculum, content and methods of the training course and will be publicly available.
