Final conference for the EURIAC project

The final conference of the EURIAC project was a successful event and was attended by participants from several European countries and several types of organisations.

The aim of the conference was to share the results from the project and to promote internationalisation as a way to improve vocational education and training.

The variety of guests does show the importance of the development of student mobilities, ECVET and the transparency of European vocational education and training.
