TO BRING BACK
Travels broaden the mind… and serve as fodders for ideas ! The AMCV’s study trips aim at making you discover good practices from abroad, transferable to your own reality, innovative solutions to understand, apprehend, get to grips with and absorb. During a few days, you will meet the stakeholders behind the success stories, exchange with experts from various backgrounds, travel with other professionals, establish contacts for further cooperation and get inspiring ideas to bring back home.
Each study trip is a mass of rich learning experiences, mixing global vision with specific issues tackled and explained in detail.
