  Quarterly issued



EUI-Net entered now a new stage driven by a new vision for the future, based on three axes of activities. The new LLL programme offers now the appropriate  framework to formulate new projects as follow up of EUI-Net. It is clear now that EUI-Net should continue with another Erasmus Network that will focus on the Academic cooperation witjh the world of business, in particular SMEs and micro-enterprises. Out of this however, it is likely that EUI-Net launch separate projects for each of the three axes in order to properly address each issue, with a dedicated partnership and detailed aims and objectives. The multitude of projects to be posted onto the Network website soon is the best indicator of success EUI-Net could have had !
