Competent without borders.

EdTWIN (Education Twinning) was an EU-part financed educational initiative led by the European Office of the Vienna Board of Education to foster sustainable development in the Centrope Region.

The goal of the project was to prepare pupils and teachers for life and work in Centrope. It was implemented together with partners from Brno, Bratislava, Györ/Moson and Sopron. The goal was reached through a variety of possibilities for reciprocal encounters and cooperation. A mainstay was the various activities and courses that were offered in order to learn the languages of the neighbours.

Old borders must be replaced by new ways of working so that cross-border cooperation becomes the new norm of the future.
