During this week, the rich program integrated the trainings with the exchange of information about infrastructures and projects between Moroccan and Portuguese mathematics teachers. The week was completed with a Lisbon Tour and a dinner in one of the most iconic restaurants in Lisbon, with some touches of Muslim culture inserted in its building.
