Architectural Aluminium Academy

It is an organization created for professionals in the field of Architectural Aluminium Systems who wish to improve their constructions and the quality of their finished products in order to offer the best possible service. The most important thing, however, lies in the fact that this is a project transmitting the culture of cooperation between us and our partners, with joint success as the main goal of this journey.

The Action is co-financed by EPANEK (European Regional Development Fund of the European Union) and from national resources and is implemented through the General Secretariat for Research and Innovation (GSIC).
