Project activities and methodology
The proposal activities are split into 8 WPs contains several activities covering the different types of work necessary for achieving the planned objectives. All activities are interlinked and arranged in a logical sequence, so that each activity produces an output that forms the basis for the next steps and activities. The proposal is designed following a Waterfall methodology, on the basis of a development life cycle model that is sequential and where each phase of implementation has distinct aims and clearly defined expected results
What concrete tangible results are expected to be achieved in each targeted partner country
This joint project will result in outcomes that directly benefit partner universities. Specifically, it will contribute to: curriculum development; upgrading staff and students practical skill; and the consolidation of relations between HEIs and the wider economic rural society. It aligns with strategies of the Egypt partner universities involved and addresses the priorities defined at national level.
PRO-DPCP project will achieve the following tangible results at 6 partner universities in Egypt:
Results and tangible outputs of our diploma program will provide potential impact on different local regions in East, North to South of Egypt. Our main target groups of the diploma program are bachelors seeking for continuation in modern specialisation of education and other professionals who are already working in related fields of plant protection and lifelong learning LLL for plant protection employee.
Main project outcome is development of this new study program implemented in 6 national HE institutions networked and access to the project integrated outcomes (curricula, module material, readers, training, list etc).
This project will target groups of: teaching staff (at least ~30 per university = total 180), trainees either administrative staff or technical staff (~600), high level management (Vice Presidency 3 x 6 =18; officials= ~60), students and graduate students in plant protection areas (~1800), employers (~3000).
Students, participants to enrol in the courses can be reached via the dissemination channels of the partner institution through websites and associated partners interested in upgrading experiences of their employees.
– Intermediate target groups are potential employers, agencies, or other agriculture institutions in neighbouring Arab countries. We planned to reach them through several activities of Dissem. (WP7).
The external stakeholders such as persons, who will benefit from the outcomes of the project in rural community and private sectors, as well as “opinion and policy makers” in HE’s, ministries, researchers, librarians, publishers, online hosts, etc., can act as catalysts for the dissemination process.
Our modern modules can be synergised with other MSc and BSc programs at our and other partner HE institutions in Egypt.
