It is based on the foundation that any learning exercise should be based on the seven (e-)s, exiting, enthusiastic, energetic, emotional, extended, excellent and educational in order to be engaging and effective. The training course will have a duration of 25 face-to-face teaching hours as well as 10 more hours through self-learning in the afternoons and a follow up through virtual discussions and group work. Each topic allows sufficient time for discussion as well as Questions and Answers Sections.
The whole training will be delivered also through e-Learning practices and related tools so that participants can follow under real situation.
The whole seminar is based on state of the art pedagogies and tools such as mindmaps, zooming software and it is highly interactive and heavily based on group sessions. It is characteristic that no presentation slides are used for the training and all participants are provided with access to various related free e-book publications for optional further reading.
Innovative techniques, such as zooming software, mindmaps, social media learning, self-tests, assignments as well as an extensive virtual library with related e-books for each topic are available to the course participant.

Who should attend
Any person that currently seeks to advance their profesional skills and competencies as well as their job prospects should attend this course. More than 900 billion EURO are allocated at each programming period by the European Union on funded european projects coming from tax payers. Therefore, it is of paramount importance and also a contractual obligation to ensure that all funded projects are disseminated properly and effectively. However, most of the projects overlook dissemination and exploitation and even if they have produced results of high quality, their impact is very low. Therefore, there is a big need for competent and skilled dissemination managers.
Furthermore, even experienced dissemination managers are expected to benefit considerably from this course. New easy techniques are mastered as well as tips, tools, advice and support is provided that will make the life even of an experienced dissemination manager easier and their job function more effective.
The event is supported by an international team of experts in implementing projects including dissemination. The main instructor is Mr Nikolaos Floratos that is involved in international projects in the educational area of more than 10 years. He has organised successfully various dissemination events, award ceremonies, international workshops. He is an expert engaged from the European Commission on assessing european funded projects and has been key-note speaker in very big events organised by significant actors, e.g. by the European Commission and the United Nations in their headquarters in New York.
