As you know, the adhesion to EPM Editorial and EPM Co-operators Boards is completely free and open to International Universities as well as to Secondary schools. EPM Editorial Board is pleased to invite you to our next 15th EPMeeting in Kastamonu, Turkey, in July 2011. Either if you are interested to join us and/or to get EPM Editorial Products or you simply wish to know our educational-scientific project, you are welcome to participate. We will even plan a full project useful to everybody to apply for Comenius Agency in order to ask a grant for next years activities among participating schools. Of course you are welcome to participate to such a preparatory visit and apply with us for the cited Comenius grant. Feel free to ask us every query you have in your mind. By the way, remind that we have no grant to help coming people. If you are or you bring students with you, we could try to give free accommodation by way of hosting school’s families.

A limited number of free accommodations for teachers are available. The priority will be given to EPM Editorial Board members, then to EPM Cooperators and, finally, to other teachers in order of confirmation of their participation to the Meeting.

If you are interested to participate to the Meeting, you have to fill and send us the form attached to this Call.
