And the feedback of our participants:

First of all, we want to mention that we liked the schedule. It was very well balanced, we had enough time for rest as well as for work. The accommodation and the food were fine. We liked the ice breakers, they were very well organized. We all agree that our favorite part of the project was “the intergalactic night”, we enjoyed dancing, laughing and learning from each other. The trips were exciting and well organized. I think we all learned how to write a proper CV. We loved the fact that we were working in international teams and by the end of the project every team had a result of their own. We had a lot of fun, we gained a lot of knowledge and we hope that we will see each other again.

When you want people to learn something, you just teach it easy and accessible capable. From this exchange we learn useful to us lessons. We learned how to make statistics and how to explore different information. We learned how to work in teams and how I to teach people, how to do and pass an interview for work. This project gave us positive experience and development.”
