Developed by the EUVP (European Union Visitors Program), the Alumni project is aimed at young leaders and potential leaders from non-EU countries. These leaders and potential future leaders are invited to visit European institutions for a period of approximately one week, with the aim of improving mutual understanding between professionals from non-EU countries and their EU counterparts.
The EUVP is jointly sponsored and administered by the European Parliament and the European Commission, and seeks to establish and maintain lasting relationships between the visitors and their European contacts. The aim is to build a worldwide network of friends and supporters of the EU.
Takeover of a site under development
We were contacted to take over the project in the summer of 2020, with our assignment being to redesign an existing site which had been under construction since 2016 and for which the entire platform mostly still had to be analysed, structured, and developed.
Subsequent to this initial request to complete the development of the public part of the site in Drupal 7, the client decided to upgrade it to Drupal 8. We also designed a social networking platform for the new site, reserved for logged-in users.
- Takeover of a project under development;
- Upgrade from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8;
- Goal of creating an internal network to enable networking and communication among Alumni;
- Tight deadline for the transition to D8 and the finalisation of the platform.
