Meeting in Kaunas for INNOLEA Project
The 4th scheduled meeting of the partners of the "INNOLEA - Innovation for the Leather Industry in Jordan and Egypt" project was held in Kaunas, Lithuania, on June 6-8 2019.
The organization and reception of the partners was done by KTU, Kaunas Technology University, at the premises of the university in Kaunas. Participation in the conference was extremely enlightening and set out horizons for future actions that can be undertaken in the field of leather by the partnership.
The project meeting was at the heart of the project's progress, namely the completion of the educational activities carried out in the European countries of the project and the planning of the setting up of the leather centres in Egypt and Jordan.
