Professor Emmanuella Plakoyiannaki and Dr. Francesco Debellis have received confirmation of funding for the project "Ulysses Contest - Digital Student Competition on Family Business" submitted under the Call Erasmus+ 2020 Round 1 KA2 - Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices.

The project involves collaboration of four university institutions - University of Szeged (lead partner, Hungary), University of Vienna (Austria), Management Center Innsbruck (Austria) and Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Italy) - and two other partners - Univations Gmbh (Germany) and Fundus Agentur (Austria).
