The MW-sonet team meets again in Szeged The MW-sonet project a Leonardo Da Vinci funded initiative started in the end of 2009 has put a specific focus on the role of rural women in the economic and social development of their local communities.

The project includes the adaptation and implementation of an efficient learning methodology for building mentoring, professional and social networking skills among women in agriculture within the national context of 5 of the participating countries (Lithuania, Hungary, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria). The methodology had been previously developed and realized by project partners in 2 countries (Iceland, Danmark), who have expressed their willingness to transfer their accumulated experience, knowledge and practical advice to the MW-sonet community.

In line with the projected activities the team met for the second time in the town of Szeged, Hungary at a project follow-up seminar, organized and hosted by the Hungarian partner in the project the Hungarian Telecottage Association.
