About twenty general mechanics high school students and their teachers from five different European countries came to Luxembourg in order to take part in the Erasmus+ project entitled "Penny Press Machine For Europe (PPM4EU)". The guests stayed for a week in mid-November and met at the Lycée des Arts et Métiers to work on their mission funded by the European Union.

Their task was to develop a penny press machine that will produces souvenir coins with typical national and European symbols or landmarks. Every school will produce its own very complex machine.

In addition to the demanding workshops, cultural visits and sightseeing tours were organized by the Lycée des Arts et Métiers. These included the Court of Justice of the European Union in Kirchberg, the Musée des Mines in Rumelange as well as the Lycée des Arts et Métiers itself. Another highlight was an afternoon spent at the Science Center in Differdange.

The representatives from Norway, Spain, Austria, Switzerland and Germany appreciated their cultural time in Luxembourg. There was also some free time in the evenings to discover Luxembourg City and its cafés, bars and restaurants.

Upon returning home, everyone realized that the European spirit is very much alive and that the work that has been done here in Luxembourg has already led to some promising results.

The project, planned for a period of over two years, includes further meetings in Barcelona, Trondheim, St. Pölten and Bad Kreuznach.
