B-SHAPES Annual Consortium Meeting

The third consortium meeting of the B-SHAPES project took place in Budapest (20-21 March 2024), and the date of the assembly also marked a year since the project’s beginning. The meeting was quite insightful and a great opportunity to catch up on the progress every work package has made so far. B-SHAPES is indeed starting to take shape!

ENRS is part of the Work Package 7 which makes us responsible for the communication, dissemination, and exploitation of the project. So far, we have worked on making the citizens aware of B-SHAPES through our social media, website and other networks. Apart from the communication responsibilities though, ENRS is also involved in Work Package 6: ‘Policy and governance: integrating perceptions of borderland citizens into responsive policymaking’, where our task is to create an Inclusive Borderland Heritage Management Plan. As the creation of the conceptual framework is in its final stages, and the partners involved in the research on euroscepticism in border regions, minorities’ perception of the project, and presenting border landscape as heritage are deep into their work, WP6 can begin its activities.

The second day of the assembly was focused on workshops, where the work packages could discuss their progress and plans for the future. And it was great to hear everything is going according to the schedule! Additionally, the general assembly discussed the ethics of the project, our data management plan, and the Gender Equality Committee has also presented their strategy. We had the opportunity to meet Zsuzsanna Simits, who will be responsible for creating a documentary film on the research and border walks that our partners plan. And it was greatly inspiring to hear about all of the art projects Lungomare is working on.

Thank you to everyone involved in the project for the great work you have done so far! And thank you to the host of the meeting, one of the projects’ partners: Eötvös Loránd University International (ELTE)
