On March 12 the European SPEACH project was officially launched. The formal kick-off was performed by Joan Janssens, dean of the School of Sport Studies and leading dean of the Centre of Expertise Healthy Ageing of Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen.
The delegations of the various international partners got together in Groningen at the Willem Alexander Sports Centre and after the official opening and introduction the work immediately started.
At the fruitful meeting led by Carin Bruining and Johan de Jong (Professor Healthy Lifestyle, Sport and Physical Activity) clear working arrangements were made, as well as a planning for the steps to take. In an atmosphere of enthusiasm and cooperation the first steps were taken towards realizing the project goals.
