Funded by the European Commision’s Erasmus+ Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices programme under the action Strategic Partnership for adult education, the Empower Active Ageing project will run for two years with partners from 5 different countries Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Italy and Portugal.
