Who we are

Welcome European Projects A.P.S.


WELCOME APS was born from Silvia Baiocco, Laura Bulgari and Martina Paccova’s idea. Our mission is to offer opportunities for skills enhancement and to open new channels to widely circulate and develop the idea of European citizenship, in order to foster the human capital development. WELCOME promotes public/private initiatives and cooperation aimed at designing, implementing and participating in EU projects.
