With development of the main theme, the seminar will be enriched by a series of discussions and lectures.The evaluation of the curriculum and requirements will eventually be integrated, according to the Commission, by an in-depth interview to better assess the suitability of the candidate for participation in the experience project proposal.The estimated cost for the workshop participation is about 1425,00 euro (It includes: intercontinental flights tickets, 8 overnights in hotel in rooms for 4 people - including breakfast, transfers from / to the airport, participation at the workshop, excursions to the area of Niagara, 5 lunches and more). The cost will be confirmed at the time of the final payment due to the Euro-Canadian Dollar exchange rate, airport taxes/fuel surcharges and the number of participants.
