TalentedEurope

After summer holidays, Talented Europe is on the road again


We are back! After some days out we are working again.

State of the project

At this moment, there are registered in the Talented Europe platform: 48 students (4 of them, validated), 31 companies and 21 acadimic institutions. The process to recruit different stackholders is still working. Remember that Talented Europe is available on the web and on Google Play market (soon in App Store for iOS)

During this summer we have seen some changes in our partnership. Regrettably, the University of Bedfordshire had decided to withdraw from the Talented Europe project from 1st July 2017. After, some considerations, we have found a new partner: Out of the Box International (Welcome!)

On the other hand, our partner University of Kosice is working in order to host the next Multiplier Event and the 5th Transnational Meeting for this project.

We are going to keep you informed!

IO4: Analysis, Documentation & Translation


The third IO of Talented Europe, Analysis, documentation & translation, is a continuos work and Flow of results during the whole Project. Main products for this output are a set of documents, in written and / or digital format, that relating different stages and processes within the ‘Talented Europe’ project. Every result deemed necessary for the project development and, especially, for its sustainability beyond 2018 will be translated to the main languages (EN, FR, DE, SP, IT and SL). Collect all the information is extremely necessary for developers. It is a very important point in order to maintain properly the cycle of life for the website and mobile applications for Talented Europe and its future developments.

IO2: Mobile Apps of Talented Europe


The Talented Europe project has as main objective the development of three final results or Intellectual Outputs: Web Plattform of Talented Europe, Mobile Apps of Talented Europe and Analysis, Documentation and Translation.
The other main output for the Talented Europe Project are the Mobile Applications, both for iOS and Android devices. This output consists on the source code and mobile applications themselves. The app lets the user to make different actions depending on the type or role it is. Their functionallities are quite similar to web application but adapted for mobile devices uses and characteristics. Currently, the development of these applications is nearing completion. We are in the final phases of coding and beginning the tests, as well as managing their publication in the stores. The launch and release of Talented Europe mobile applications is planned for next July 2017. From that moment the Apps will be available in the main stores of iOS and Android. They will also be included in the dissemination plan of the project to facilitate its reach to the final stakeholders. At the next Multiplier Event to be held in Kosice (Slovakia) in October 2017 will be officially presented to attendees. For the development of mobile applications, NativeScript 3.0 with Angular 2.4 is being used with TypeScript 2.1.0.

IO1: Web Plattform of Talented Europe


The Talented Europe project has as main objective the development of three final results or Intellectual Outputs: Web Plattform of Talented Europe, Mobile Apps of Talented Europe and Analysis, Documentation and Translation.
Related to first intelectual output, Web Plattform of Talented Europe, this application is fully developed and in its first phase of exploitation (http://talentedeurope.eu). A beta versión of the plattform was presented in our first Multiplier Event (Luton, UK, November 2016), then the fully functional versión was finished in early February 2017, to be tested and fixed for two months and finally presented at the Tenerife (Spain) Multiplier Event in April 2017. All the functionalities, resulting from the initial proposal along with the results and conclusions obtained from the analysis phase, have been implemented and tested. At present, the main efforts of the project partners regarding this Output are focused on the dissemination of the web platform and the incorporation of the largest number of stakeholders (students, academic institutions and companies). Technically, for the backend of this web application has been used the framework Laravel 5.2 with the version of PHP 5.5.9 and MariaDB 10.1 as database manager. In the frontend is used a hybrid model where the views have been developed with the Blade template engine, adding functionality using Vue.js 1.0.28. As a CSS preprocessor is used Sass. JavaScript files are written using the ES6 standard and are compiled to ES5 using Babel.
