Expected outcomes

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:


Detailed need analysis studies of PRO-DPCP targets and good practices guide for plant protection(WP1)


A mutually supportive network and learning community of academics, practitioners and students in the art of plant protection field.


Set up of plant clinic centres (6) at each partner university in Egypt equipped with new facilities.


Trained staff (academic, administrative), e-learning developer and laboratory technicians.


Trained students and employees in cooperation with local associated partners for short period internship.


A new professional diploma program accredited for the development of transversal skills, reflective practice, business mind-set to adapt to continuous change in the labor market.


New courses developed and updated with ECTS credit system.


New teaching and training resource platform network and integration among partner institutions via server pool with digitalized modules and other protection database.


Highly qualified students with academic and practical skills graduated by 2021/2022.


New Internal QC system for PRO-DPCP program developed at each partner institution in Egypt.


New Impact study of the project outcomes on HE at PC elaborated.


New dissemination, sustainability, exploitation operational plans conducted.

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.
