MUPYME Project

 External Experts Panel 

The External Experts Panel (EEP) of MUPYME project consists of a group of experts specialized in adult and lifelong learning all around the world to guarantee the transferability of MUPYME project results to other international organizations and stakeholders beyond partnership.

This group of experts has the capacity to replicate the activities proposed, so they promote the transfer of the results into their own countries. The EEP is updated regularly with the last results of the project and their inputs are always taken into account in the periodic deliverables to be submitted to the Erasmus+ National Authority as well as in the development of the project actions.
