The training fully answers my hopes, because we receive not only new theoretical knowledge and information, but also because we can practice them right away in the form of case studies and real life situations“, says Yasemin Turkarslan – the participant from Turkey. „I learned we can work together despite our differences in order to make an efficient team. I would like to apply my knowledge, which I have received here, by passing it to the teenagers in my country, because there is a social deficit.  I want to change that the way this program changed me”, adds Yasemin.

      The project Enterprise 2020 includes many different lectures and practical task focusing on team work and case studies. This makes it possible for participants from Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Cyprus, Lithuania, Romania, Turkey, Hungary, France and Czech Republic to learn from each other.
