Marketing Text Local dissemination seminars contribute to promotion of the i-Lab concept in a local community.
Description Dissemination seminars were organised by the partners that launched an i-Lab under the project: P1, P2, P4, P5. Seminars aimed at popularisation of the project’s idea in local environments, i.a. among teachers of vocational education, universities, local enterprises, cooperating institutions. In the course of seminars, the idea and the genesis of innovation laboratories were demonstrated. In addition, its potential, capacity of use and areas of application were presented. A study visit in an innovation laboratory constituted a part of each seminar. It included a demonstrative session aiming at practical demonstration of the capacities and principles of work in an i-Lab. In total, 143 persons participated in seminars (42 in Poland UR, 28 in Slovenia, 32 in Romania, and 41 in Germany).
Target group VET teachers, trainers and VET institution managers, potential i-Lab users.
Result Organisation of seminars was significant with regard to the planned use and operation of innovation laboratories after the project completion. Representatives of institutions constituting potential i-Lab users participated in a seminar. Innovation laboratories cannot be accessible online, remotely. Their potential may be used only in a stationary way, so it is important to concentrate the promotional and information operations in the first period of operation of the laboratories on local institutions, for which the laboratory use shall not entail expensive and time-consuming travels.
Area of application Local dissemination seminars correspond with planned activities aiming at dissemination of the project outcomes.
