At the beginning of 2023 six new Erasmus + projects with a total budget of 2 400 000 EUR where EPSI partners will start.
So far 2022 has been a great year for EPSI. We soon announced that the network now numbers 132 partners from 24 countries but we continue our success together. Our organization will be part of six different project consortiums that aim to adress different challenges and perspectives in the scope of Erasmus+ funded projects. Here is some information about them:
