VALS Project

What is VALS?

It is a EU funded project that searches the cooperation between universities and companies all over Europe to solve real world business problems by using and creating FREE and Open Source software. This goal is achieved by creating a virtual system so that students can do practices in the companies or organizations related to the projects. These companies must be related to FREE and Open Source software.

There is a virtual system where students can find projects to participate in the VALS project. http://semesterofcode.com
