At a ceremony held on 10 May in Graz, Austria, the European Commission and the Austrian Presidency of the EU jointly honoured the first ever Leonardo da Vinci Ambassadors.
The Leonardo da Vinci Ambassadors, one each from twenty European countries, were identified as excellent examples of a successful trans-national mobility by the National Agencies that run the Leonardo grants. They will promote the programme, giving it a human face.
In addition, 24 mobility projects were short-listed for the European Quality Awards at the event. The short-listed projects will serve as examples of excellence, to inspire future mobility projects, for the benefit of European vocational education and training as a whole.
