Students and teachers having fun together

aces Network Events

Two major aces network events mark the beginning and the closure of an aces project year and bring together delegations of pupils and teachers from the awarded project schools as well as other stakeholders. Besides the single projects, these big conferences are additional platforms for meeting and exchange on a larger scale.


The Academy

The Academy is designed as a participative platform for learning, exchange and reflection of experiences. It provides a stage for presenting the outcomes of the projects related to the overall topic of "Solidarity" and allows for joint evaluation and learning from good practices of others. The concluding festive aces Ceremony is the place for recognition of achievements, presenting the Special Achievement Award winners and for celebration.

The aces Academy 2016 took place from 31 May to 3 June 2016 in Senec, Slovak Republic.
