What was the purpose of your visit at JUNIA?
Dr. Frimpong Twum visited JUNIA from April 20th to 28th 2023 to attend the JUNIA Erasmus international week in Lille, France upon an invitation from JUNIA sponsored by ERASMUS.
And a few words about your overall experience at Junia and what it can lead to.
The visit was exciting and the week was well organized and very informative as the presentations during the week were very educative with discussions of current trends including Artificial Intelligence, Climate Change, and etc. Opportunity was also taken to explore the city of Lille and associate with the French culture and French people.
