“My first contact with Eurosite was during the workshop in Litoměřice where I had an opportunity not only to learn something new, or look at something old from a different perspective, but also to contribute and share my experiences. Since I’m a firm believer in life long learning and knowledge exchange, I liked this combination of professional growth, networking and experience exchange. And looking at Eurosite’s mission and work… I would definitly like to be part of it.”
