For this Erasmus week in Palermo, each nation worked to a business plan project.

In the first day, of the Erasmus week, each nation presented their projects, in front of the other students and teachers.

Italian idea : The Italian idea was about a typical Sicilian liqueur the Limoncello, which is a liqueur with the     taste of the lemon. The innovative part comes from their idea to make a double bottle which contains a homemade limoncello and a lemon cream which gives you the possibility to have a more tasty and less alcoholic limoncello.

Greek idea : The Greek idea was about a trekking society, by paying a quote this society organizes for you excursions in natural places, with all the equipment that you need for trekking.

Danish idea : The Danish idea was about a credit card with a fingerprint recognition system.

This kind of credit card offers you the possibility to be safer and this card also works in all the markets and stores.

Slovakian idea : The Slovakian idea was about the making of a multi-activity room inside the school.

With this activities you can share your culture, your ideas and make new friends.

Finnish idea : The Finnish idea was about a eco-friendly society, this society gives you the possibility to make customized pet’s houses, all with eco-friendly materials.

In the third day of the week each student worked in mixed groups at the national library, for improve the business plans, while the press group was taking notes of their work.

At the last day of the week each group for each nation had to present their improved business plan.
