The encounter took place this time in Newry (Northern Ireland), from the 06th to the 09th of October. This year, the focus of the programme was on internationalization strategies, with a highlight on internationalization at home, and on co-design and co-delivery of VET curriculums.
Besides, we could also meet with the city mayor of Newry and had the opportunity to exchange information about projects already running among partners of the NoN (such as CyVETsecurity or a KA3 project which starts this year) as well as new ideas of posible projects and other ways of international cooperation to be pursued in 2020.
