On the 27th and 28th of January 2020, the National Erasmus + Office for HE in Albania, together with representatives of the 10 Winning Projects from the Albanian HEI, participated in the Erasmus + “Capacity Building in HE” program at the “Grant Holders 2020” meeting.

During the two-day meeting EACEA presented the technicalities, innovations, guides, tips for successful project implementation in the next two or three years.  During bilateral meetings between EACEA representatives with participants, more topics have been elaborated.

The meeting has been an excellent opportunity for new and experienced practitioners to exchange knowledge and to network with other projects.
