This research and development project is being carried out in cooperation with a private company, a municipality and a ministry, whose ways of managing meetings and meeting cultures are studied and, if possible, developed by meeting researchers and consultants from the Department of Learning. We had a rolling start with the Culture and Leisure Administration, Municipality of Copenhagen in November 2006, vestjyskBANK in March 2007 and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation in January 2008. Fifty managers and others meeting leaders in each organisation are being trained  in meeting facilitation so that hundreds of employees should be able to experience better meetings. A research-based before and after measurement will determine the degree of effect: whether the meetings are conducted more effectively, create more value for the clients/users and increase the meeting participants' engagement and experience of meaningfulness.
