When i found out about the StartUpcycling project i got really excited! I spent a lot of hours of a Sunday morning to fill up the application. After that, I was praying for a positive response from the Action Synergy team. Finally, after some days I got the happy news. Officially, I would be one of the 25+ people, from 7 different countries, gathering for the first time in Berlin in order to StartUpcycling!
My experience in the StartUpcycling project can be described as an unexpected and unique chance to be involved in an inspiring field, with well-informed participants coming from around the world, for a remarkable purpose.
My internship experience in Action Synergy was absolutely amazing. I want to tell you more about it. These three months have been rich of pleasant surprises. When I attended my master degree in EU project management I was expecting to work soon with Erasmus+ combining my recent professional path with my great passion for education and social issues. I really didn’t expect to do it in Greece thanks to an other Erasmus+ project.
Students from Keighley College (Leeds City College) worked in Action Synergy for a few weeks via Erasmus+ KA1 short term student mobility. Haroon and Jonathan wrote those about their experience with us:
When I heard about the program Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs I thought it could be a great opportunity to develop my skills in a real work environment. A great chance to see how I can adjust to a company already in motion and obtain very valuable knowledge that will help to my future company.
