Extra aim was to enlarge the international focus on international relations within Dutch education.
The Leonardo project EcoPreneurship is a co-operation between educational institutes from Norway, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Aeres took part with the TVET location Dronten, the Netherlands. This school for vocation education is specialised in biodynamic agriculture.
