1. Interview the key actors of mobility (Participants, schools, companies, mobility agencies).

The ultimate goal is to deliver better mobility in the future. Luca Boetti stated that we need to care about all the stakeholders involved; we do our best to deliver a useful opportunity for their future and indeed we are not only sending or hosting students, but we are also caring about them and about their future and labour possibilities. In nutshell, we need to work all together to reach the ultimate goal.
