Following the results of the last evaluation period, Action Synergy is glad to announce that it will have the chance to participate in 10 new projects as a partner or as coordinator. The projects are related with different fields of education and training and will give the opportunity to Action Synergy to work with a variety of target groups and organisations coming all over Europe and beyond.
