Erasmus+ project writing meet up in Sonta – Coworking in Serbia
Are you interested in coworking in Serbia? The October deadline for sending Erasmus+ projects is close, and we are all writing them at the last minute, we lack partners and professional support to write them as well as possible. So that writing projects wouldn’t be boring, we decided to get together and write them together, while hanging out, cooking, and helping each other with the project application.
In this way, you will write the project easier, faster, and on time, you will be able to ask people who have worked with the evaluators of Erasmus+ projects what to correct, and you will connect with many people and organizations and make good friends.
