Today, 04.27.2020, we have held the FIRST TRANSNATIONAL MEETING in a VIRTUAL way of the E + program project «VET STUDENTS INTO TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES». Although we have not been able to meet in person due to the closure of borders, it has been a great opportunity to get to know each other among the project partners, as well as to concretize the development of the intellectual results and the main ideas of the project.
Laura Gómez, project technician at Ikasia Technologies has presented to Jordi Rizo, project coordinator of RedTree Making Projects, the project of the E + program «VET STUDENTS INTO TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES» in order to show him the advantages and opportunities that it represents in the field of VET education.
The work does not stop. We have great news.

The result has been magnificent. We leave you a link to their website: http://1epal-k-achaias-new.ach.sch.gr/index.php/2020/04/21/book1_ka2/
