Projects in progress
The Agenzia Ministeriale Nazionale Erasmus Italia promotes and invites the national universities to constitute Consortia Placements with associations, secondary schools, firms, companies, foundations to increase and improve the assistance and the welcome of all the international guests in Italy. On the 18th and 19th of February 2008 the National Erasmus Agency invited our association Erasmus Point Naples O.N.L.U.S. to Rome as a safe partner for the Consortia Placements. After the meeting, the Consortium “Mediterraneo Job”, created by our association, was introduced in order to promote Naples as the Educational Center of Italian Language of South of Italy, to increase the stream of the international students towards our Regione Campania, besides supporting stages and apprenticeships for the students who joined the LLP Erasmus Programme.
