VISConti  meets industry and schools in Palermo. This is the first of three Multiplier Events that VISConti will organise in two years to bring VISConti partners in contact with industry and to raise awareness and interest of professionals in VET and in industry about VISConti and its mission. It is also a reaching out exercise to engage participants into the networking activities of the project that are to mature into a Community of Practice in the following months.
