Launch of the project ELAN



The launch ceremony of the project INTERREG ELAN (Linguistic exchanges and innovative learning with mobility) took place on April Thursday 11th 2019 from 9am to 11am at the La Batelière hotel in Schoelcher.
E.L.A.N aims to encourage multilingualism in the Caribbean and to reinforce the academic, student, teaching, university and professional mobility in the region.
