On 28th-29th September, the consortium of the Erasmus+ project DiaSHOE met in Iasi (Romania) at the Technical University “G. Asachi” (TUIASI). The project of expected duration of 24 months is on its last phase.
As previously explained, DiaSHOE aims at raising awareness among different categories of people supporting diabetics on the Diabetes Foot Syndrome (DFS), and on the importance of appropriate footwear in order to improve the quality of life of the patients. In this regard, the partners coming from 7 different EU countries (Belgium, Czechia, Germany, Romania, Poland, Portugal and Spain) are developing training materials for specific target groups, namely footwear designers and technicians, shop assistants and DFS patients.
While the training materials for footwear manufacturers are at the piloting phase, the consortium is already engaged on developing the other two courses. If you are a footwear technician or designer, you can still contribute to the consolidation of the already existing course by completing the lessons and providing feedback: you will just need to create a profile on the learning platform Losglobos (reachable from the project website).
The participants in the meeting in Iasi were very pleased with the positive feedback received so far, and the big interest shown by stakeholders: all elements that give a boost of optimism on the success of the upcoming tasks. During the last phase of the project, the partners will dedicate themselves to develop the remaining materials. Moreover, the consortium will organise national events to disseminate the outcomes of the project and respond to any questions from interested stakeholders. In addition, you will also be able to learn about the specific training materials in the upcoming newsletters.
We therefore invite you to keep following the project website www.diashoeproject.eu and the social media profiles (Facebook and LinkedIn) to find the most suitable opportunity to meet us in person!
The DiaSHOE project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
