Beecos – Bringing Up New Eco-Scientists is an Erasmus+ project which involves five high schools from Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy, Spain, in the exchange of good practices in the fields of recycling, R.E.S. and the reduction of energy consumption.
Our aims are:

- enhancing scientific competences through direct experience.
