Discussion: Your experiences with "Application opportunities"

There is no good or bad program. Attending such programmes make as reach.

They have attended most of the programs. Not all are good. The largest problem is financial: EU did not give enough money. You must look for sponsors. funds for hospitality are too small. In some countries is impossible to find hospitality for 22 euro per person. Only some countries have facilities like hostels. In Greece they do not.

They do not have the opportunity to take part in programs with small financial support. Programs like Leonardo are good and easy to apply for.
