What is specific about this training academy is that it asks for longer commitment throughout the year. There are three sessions happening in the year 2020, with three different dates and in three different places in Europe:
I session: 24-29 March 2020, Malta
II session: 16-21 June 2020, Slovakia
III session: 3-8 November 2020, Belgium
Applying participant will need to go through all of them.
The second specific thing is that a certain amount of participation will be asked. Currently, we are in a process of finding subsidies for participants coming from places with less opportunities, but it is not clear how much of it will cover the real expenses.
