Grants:Project/Rapid/Macreanu Iulian/Preliminary meeting for initiating „Romania 100” project
I am one of the coordinators of the Wikimedians of Romania and Moldova User Group (WMROMD). In our plan for 2018 we have a commemorative project - „Centenar Romania”, dedicated to 100 years anniversary of the Romanian state. The project main goals are:
- to add or improve a significant numbers of articles related to this very important event in the history of Romania
- to alleviate the ”geographic gap” regarding distribution of the editors across the Romanian territory (there are no significant presence of the editors from this university center)
- to raise awareness about Wikimedia projects and WMROMD projects
I am the coordinator of this project from the WMROMD side. After a series of preliminary discussions we have identified the University of Cluj as a possible partner for developing a common project. (Coordinator from the university professor Vlad Popovici - vlad.popovici[at]ubbcluj.ro)
In order to do so, we agree to have a preliminary meeting,at Cluj, for one day (between 16-25 April 2018).
- Travel from Bucharest to Cluj, (domestic travel, Romania - 600 km), in late afternoon
- Accommodate in Cluj for 1 night
- Conduct the activities in the morning
- Travel back to Bucharest in late afternoon
- Coordinating meeting with the representatives of University of Cluj
- Training workshops with the students which will be involved in the project
As a result of my participation, we expect to:
- formal agree on further developing of the project
- define the objectives and timeline of the projects
- clarify the tasks and responsibilities of each side
- raise awareness about Wikimedia projects, in general, and WMROMD projects, in special
- conduct a 2 hours specific training with the students which will be involved in the project
