Currently, in BUPNET we look at how we can make our own further education more innovative by including mobility – also abroad – as an option. We are fortunate enough to have funds available for this. So it will be “off to Europe”.
If you are interested in exploring innovative work experience incl. mobility as a means to update competences or to discover new ones, you should check on our SASSI Hub.
