Europe is our region and same as us -their EPs go for exchange in summer. There are few entities promoting succesfully winter e.g. Hungary, Georgia, Russia and Turkey.
Huge benefit of cooperation within our region is no need for visas to travel around or visas which are often "just a formality".
Europe realizes EPs mostly in the late June, July and August, sometimes entities can supply September (if we do have opportunities earlier and they promote specifically this period of time -Greece, Germany, Italy).
