Projecto INNOLEA - ERASMUS +
INNOLEA project aims to fill an apparent gap in the area of specialized services for the leather sector with the establishment of four leather centres in local Universities, two in Jordan and two in Egypt, utilizing the experience and expertise of EU partners in the area of services for the leather sector.
