ENLIGHT published first "Success stories of Inclusive Mobility"

Inclusion, equality and diversity are vital elements of ENLIGHT’s overarching vision. This implies making international student mobility accessible to the whole student body in terms of background, affluence, living situation e.g., for students with disabilities or health issues; from less favourable socio-economic backgrounds; with specific (cultural, religious, and personal) motivations.
