ECOTEC is the National Agency for innovative practices in the Leonardo, Grundrvig and Transversal Life Long Learning Programmes (LLP). Widening participation in the LLP is at the heart of ECOTEC to increase access to European education through providing funds for mobilities, training and research with European partners.
