Meeting with members of the European Parliament, Brussels (February 2019)
Sarah Guth and José Díez Verdejo introduced VE and presented results from the groundbreaking Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange project.
Robert O’Dowd presented the results of the EVALUATE Project which he is coordinating and Pilar Garcés, director general of universities in Castilla y León, explained how her public authority was using the outcomes of EVALUATE to integrate Virtual Exchange in their policy development.
