    • … enable participants to acquire direct knowledge and stimulate curiosity and interest for continuous learning

      • They operate directly in the field, where the innovations are developed
      • Champions of the experiences become the trainers and are remunerated.
      • Learners are able to directly interact with the champions and ask questions they really care about.
