  1. Good morning,

    For one of the projects at Tilburg University I am looking for a network focused on low literacy in Spain. Do you happen to know any networks focused on this subject in this region?

    1. Dag Guus,
      Ik zal vandaag contact opnemen met een paar experts in Spanje. Kom er snel op terug.
      Jeroen Clemens
