Achievements: The project focused on developing and strengthening good neighbour relationships between the cross-border communities, improved the contacts and possibilities for joint cross-border activities, partnerships and cooperation among students and teachers.The exchange of best practices in the instruction in mathematics were assisted with the familiarization with the two school systems, finding and removing of existing weaknesses, introduction of new innovative approaches in teaching. Through the conducted Forum under the name "Education - Key to Integration" professors and mathematics teachers from Bulgaria and Turkey had an opportunity for sharing best practices in the field of education in mathematics. A students Guide with information about universities in Turkey and Bulgaria, including mainly those teaching mathematical disciplines has been prepared and issued.
