(Rome, 8 February 2019) In the frame of the project “Guiding Refugees via European Exchange and Training, GREET“, lead by the Academic Cooperation Association – ACA a series of thematic webinar will start on February 15.
The project is funded under the Horizon 2020 Science4Refugees call and aims to contribute to the integration of highly skilled refugees in European higher education through mutual learning and exchange of good practices among national support structures and higher education institutions- HEIs in 9 European countries: Austria, Belgium/Flanders, Germany, Greece, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
