CIEBI

In the framework of promotion and dissemination of EYE/ERASMUS NET project, CIEBI held two presentation sessions during the month of November/2016, aimed to present the project at regional level, which took place at the “IPG – Instituto Politécnico da Guarda” (Polytechnic Institute of Guarda) and at “ESG – Escola Superior de Gestão de Idanha-a-Nova” (School of Management, which belongs to Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco) on the 22nd and 29th November, respectively. These sessions were attended by 105 participants, aged between 18-55 years, from Polytechnic Institutes, Universities and business incubator.

Among participants 7 potential entrepreneurs (NEs and HEs) have expressed interest and requested additional information about the project. Since then, we are in constant contact with all of them to clarify doubts and answer questions about the programme and to better understand their expectations and motivations. During these contacts we always emphasize the benefits of the programme as well as the support and assistance that they could receive from us throughout the application and exchange process.

Regarding the contents of the sessions, we highlight the presentation of EYE animation video ((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdSc1shbc1Q) and a previous success story of an exchange between a NE from Portugal and a HE from the United Kingdom (https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLE2D34086F4BE5AF6&v=GLPxqwB_7rM), as well as a practical explanation of the steps required to complete the online application, namely how to fulfill the application form.
