The pilot training of LAMOS EU took place in our offices in Marousi. These seminars aimed to help people who were interested in moving abroad for work, or people who had recently moved abroad for work.

Young people from Greece, Spain, UK, Lithuania etc. participated, and gave us positive feedback regarding our training and its development.
