Microsoft Teams: a demo session (Working and Meeting Remotely Taskforce – fourth online meeting)

Online 26 May: 2.30 - 4.00 pm

The emergency linked to the spread of COVID19 has had countless consequences on the service provision and on the daily work of EPR members.

One of these consequences is the shift of all possible interventions from the physical to the digital world. Working and meeting remotely has become a priority and an obligation for many organizations.

For this reason, starting from April, with the aim of sharing experiences and challenges on this topic, EPR has formed the WORKING AND MEETING REMOTELY TASK-FORCE.

Following the first 3 online meetings of the task-force, the group identified communication flows as one of the most delicate and difficult activities to manage in this period. The COVID19 emergency has coerced our organizations to pour their energies into many digital channels of communication, which, however, often risk fragmenting the flows and adding obstacles rather than removing them. For this reason, the group has decided to focus more on digital tools that can facilitate and support communication flows within organizations.

Bart Coopman, executive officer at GTB, will introduce participants to the reasons why his organization has chosen this specific tool, how it works for them, the benefits, the struggles they’ve had (and have). GTB  Teams-environment will be shown in real time to the attendees as an example.

Given the particular interest that this introduction can also get beyond the organizations that normally participate in the task force, the meeting will be open to all interested EPR members.

Coordinators interested in participating in the event are asked to contact EPR secretariat (Roberto Zanon –  by the 20th of May at the latest. Further instructions will be sent in the days preceding the event only to interested organizations.
