EDU-LAB: Better chances for young people - newsletter vol. 10

 

Dear Readers,

 

The past few months have been very busy for the EDU-LAB project consortium. We are happy to say that many important milestones marked this period, including the development of the New Danubian Governance Model, the Danubian Charter for Young Talents and the accreditation of the first professionally-oriented study programme in Slovakia.

 

Next on the agenda is the EDU-LAB stakeholder meeting in Kecskemét on 5th December 2018. Besides, our final event in Zagreb is also approaching, save the date for May 15-17 2019!

 

Until then, you can read more in detail about what we have been up to lately.

 

Best regards,

Krisztina Tóth
