ADAM, through its members and collaborators/ partners, has a long-standing network and vast experience in project cooperation with partners from the Euromed region, SEE (Western Balkans and Turkey) and MENA. Our multilingual and experienced staff allows us accurate insight into the regions' developments and to connect to crucial project partners supporting our (and ALF's) mission and objectives.
