‘TOP – Transnational Orienta Express Platform’ is a two-year Erasmus+ funded project. It derives from the need to create the bonds, establish the appropriate awareness, and to guide different target groups towards effective school choices or job opportunities and stems from the idea that this journey towards one's own fulfilment starts with the knowledge of the particular characteristics of each individual, emerging from a self-assessment process.

It mainly seeks to empower all sectors in society through building bridges between people, reinforcing mutual understanding, and boosting economic and social development to enable Europe and its neighbors face the common challenges, and achieve social cohesion and sustainability.

The Consortium is comprised of: Oltre SRL, Italy – Amadeus, Austria – Eurocivis, Spaign – European Career Evolution (ECE), Ireland – Association on Refugees and Migrants (ARM), Bulgaria – Lebanese Development Network (LDN), Lebanon – and Confederazione Nationale dell’Artigianato e della Piccola e Media Impressa della Provincia di Pescara, Italy.
