After several months of preparation, many meetings and workshops, various ideas and proposals, the process of calling and selecting the best candidates, ReSTI.academy has come to life. Lecturers, representatives of the ReSTI project consortium and attendees gathered in Eisenstadt to meet and start a new chapter of the RESTI project.
