Marketing Text Final Conference to promote the project and disseminate the results
The Final Conference in Rome (IT), which was promoted by all partners in their respective countries/cities via social media, provided an excellent and effective platorm to raise awareness of the 'ARCO Agenda' and the 'ARCO Model' (as set out in the Dissemination Strategy) and disseminate the 'Products' and results of the Euro-Arco project at regional, national and EU level.
The target audiences for the Final Conference included those in the (a) Non-formal System (the creative and cultural community), (b) the Formal System (Academic Community), (c) Policy Makers, (d) Other Stakeholders, and (e) Wider Public. In particular, the Final Conference event was of particular appeal to those VET organisations and VET policy makers, especially in the case of sharing lessons learnt and effective practice emerging from the project. Thus, the format of the Final Conference event included experiential learning workshops. This provided guests with an opportunity to engage in Transferable Skills workshop activities that had been designed/exchanged between the Trainers involved in the project. This approach complemented the partner Case Studies and the more formal aspects of the Final Conference exceptionally well.
Target group VET practitioners and VET policy makers
Area of application
The Final Conference Dissemination Event 'NEET TO BE FREE' was organised by partner MuLab (Rome, IT) in collaboration with "Teatro Verde, "Matemu" Youth Centre, Rome; "Centro6" Youth Centre, and was hosted by Teatro Scuderie Villino Corsini. It was attended by 50 people representing a range of VET organisations from both formal and non-formal systems from different parts of Italy, and those taking part in related events totaled 100, included representatives from complementary organisations in Rome, Bologna, Padova and Benevento.
The event provided an excellent platform for disseminating the results of the Transfer of Innovation project, in particular, it gave a platform for each partner organisation to present their 'baseline' and the impact/change within their own organisation. Further, the Results and Impact captured through the Final Evaluation and Validation report were presented, as were the main lessons learnt and effective practice emerging from the project.
