Cutting edge technology such as Augmented Reality and Simulations are essential for everybody today green skills and will be important to almost every job in the future”. CARDET, in collaboration with partners from 6 EU countries participate in the GoGreen project, under the ERASMUS+ KA2 programme of the European Commission.
