Description of Dissemination Event
The “Emphasys Centre” has participated in the International Educational Fair of Cyprus 2018 “Education and Career”, organized by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus, the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), the Cyprus Employers and Industrialists Federation (ΟΕΒ) and the European Office of Cyprus (EOC), between the 23rd and 25th of February in Nicosia.
The International Education Fair of Cyprus is one of the biggest events organized in the field of education and training, as most of the participants are well-established organisations, higher education institutions and public-authorities. The Fair is regarded as the gate where the representatives of the higher educational institutions meet and attract Cypriot and international students living in Cyprus and wish to study either locally or abroad. The Fair also hosts every year public services and semi-state bodies to inform the public and especially young people regarding potential career and employment opportunities. Furthermore, the Fair offers the opportunity to providers of services addressed to students and young people such as educational and career services to approach students and young people.
During the International Fair the project ‘SWOT’ was presented individually on a specific time and has attracted the attention of interested people. The Emphasys team disseminated the project using all the relevant material that was designed for the needs of the fair, such as leaflets, banners, presentations, lists etc.
It is important to note that a contact list in relation to the potential registration in the ‘SWOT’ platform was initiated which will be an ongoing activity until the end of the project which can be implemented by other partners as well.
