This week we have organised the Kick-Off meeting of the ERASMUS+ project: ‘Promoting Modern Talent Management Practices in Asian Higher Education institutions’ (aTM). Twenty-eight faculty and support staff from 6 countrieshave participated, although most of them were from China and Malaysia.

On the first day, the meeting focused on getting to know each other. To discover the personal and professional expectations of each one, and to identify our motivations. The second day focused on project management: internal communication, external communication, dissemination, financial management, project management, quality management, etc. The third and final day focused on Work Package 1. A small workshop was held with the aim of identifying what each participant understood by talent and talent management in academia.
