Inclusion and diversity are among the key priorities of the Erasmus+ programme, therefore it is important to be aware of potential obstacles that would prevent someone from taking part in the projects, and effectively get rid of them. Participants will broaden their European contacts´ network and will gain new connections for collaboration at an international level on the themes addressed.
