Holistic management of biological cultivations

Code: LLP-LdV-PLM-CY-1671367
Programme: LLP/LEONARDO DA VINCI
Action:
PLM - "People in the labour market"
Target group: Biological Producers/Farmers
Activity Period: 31/03/2013 and 13/04/2013
Country: Almeria, Spain

The available data show the possibility of dynamic growth of biological farming in Cyprus. Participants having ahead this development challenge will be trained and retrained so as to:

  •     acquire the appropriate expertise that has to do with integrated management in biological farming
  •     meet the growing demand for food of high nutritional value
  •     exploit to the maximum both the dynamic of the export and domestic biological production sector
  •     certify their crops and their products according to international standards  ((ΕΚ) 834/2007, (ΕΚ) 889/2008 and 235/2008)
  •     be informed about the institutional framework for organic farming in the EU and the laws and ways in Spain in order to transfer best practices
  •     establish a network and a channel of communication between organizations and farmers working in the same sector

In summary, participants will enter into a development process, management and utilization of crops, which corresponds to European standards and will enhance the profile of both Cypriot farmer in the European agricultural map and also the development of active European citizenship which are the key objectives of the program

Application of geographic information systems (GIS) in environmental management

Code: LLP-LdV-PLM-CY-1671259
Programme: LLP/LEONARDO DA VINCI
Action:
PLM - "People in the labour market"
Target group: Foresters
Activity Period: 16/06/2013 - 30/06/2013
Country: Barcelona - Spain

The program addresses to graduates of Forestry Departments. Based on the specialized scientific and technological knowledge, the learners may be employed as executives in private and public sectors, local authorities and authorities supervised by the public sectors, either autonomously or in collaboration with other scientists. Their occupation may include study, research and application of science and technology on contemporary or special areas of Forestry, management, operation, protection, development and exploitation of forests and woodlands (sustainable development).

Participants will be trained in theory and practice of:

  • • The introduction and structuring of information
  • • The organization of geographic information
  • • The management of data in GIS software
  • • Exploring data in GIS
  • • The presentation of data in GIS
  • • The urban management and spatial information using GIS
  • • The management of environmental information using GIS
  • • Basics chartosynthesis
  • • Chartosynthesis and ways of data visualization

Also practical training of GIS systems in organizations that have implemented and manage GIS applications, such as CREAF and the Instituto Cartográfico de Cataluña (ICC) will take place. Personal projects will be assigned to the participants.

Management of modern Greenhouses

Code: LLP-LdV-PLM-CY-1671106
Programme: LLP/LEONARDO DA VINCI
Action: PLM - "People in the labour market"
Target: Farmers
Activity Period: 09/03/2013 - 23/03/2013
Country: Italy

Farmers must be trained and re-trained because they have to face the challenge of developing modern greenhouses in their region:
• learn about new methods of design, construction and management of greenhouses
• be able to collaborate with stakeholders from different fields in the design, construction and management of emissions (engineers, technicians, agronomists, etc.)
• maintain or increase their income
• be able to apply new developments and techniques in the field of greenhouse crops, on environmental protection and sustainability.
• gain work experience (mainly young people and traditional farmers) through technical visits and involvement in modern greenhouses
In summary, participants farmers will enter into a development process, management and utilization of greenhouses, which corresponds to European standards and will enhance the profile of both Cypriot farmer in the European agricultural map and also the development of active European citizenship which are the key objectives of the program.

Planning and Designing of Urban Spaces

Code: LLP-LdV-PLM-CY-1671260
Programme: LLP/LEONARDO DA VINCI
Action:
PLM - "People in the labour market"
Target: Architectures & Civil Engineers
Activity Period: 16/09/2013 - 29/09/2013
Country: Barcelona - Spain

This project involves the training and re-training of engineers in issues of urban environmental planning and the searching of ways of business development and networking as they would result from entrepreneurship visits and seminars that will be organized in the context of mobility. This project aims to fill the gap both in the undergraduate studies and in the acquisition of expertise and awareness-training of those interested in this field. The project is moving towards supporting employability and strengthening the working relationship of the participants in the companies where they are employed. Also, by using the acquired skills of trainees and by their participation in this project, they will gain an extra qualification facing the unemployment in their field which is a consequence of the economic crisis and the great decline of the economic activities. Participation in the project of engineers who are involved in the urban planning, will enable trainees to create "cores" of cooperation and partnership business, aiming both at providing better but mainly specialized services and at highlighting and contributing to the creation of a comprehensive plan management of the urban ecosystem by setting in the center the man and the environment.

Main objectives and expected outcomes of the program is:
-Training of young engineers in environmental planning and the opportunities it gives in their field
-Energy saving and environmental protection
-Knowledge-sharing among European young engineers and specialized scientists
-Education and certification of new engineers in software packages specialized in environmental planning
-Creation of a skilled workforce of engineers who will respond successfully to the new "challenges" and data
-Acquisition of specialized expertise through education of young engineers with visits and placements in such projects.

The host organization will be IAAC in Barcelona, where young engineers from all over Cyprus, will go for two weeks.

Bakery and Confectionery

Country: France

The project gives participants the possibility to learn, find, to be trained, and develop intercultural skills. Traveling abroad to another country, daily and intensive training, meetings with representatives of the Bakery – Confectionery sector, the exchange of views and the practical training-placement to enterprises, will provide participants with skills and competence in order to:

    Accept that human behavior is influenced culturally.
    Get to know different cultural standards without the judging in positive or negative way.
    Identify their own cultural beliefs and to judge the results when they interact with other people of different culture.
    Expand the standards of cultural behavior.
    Use their cultural norms in a flexible way.
    Can adopt selected values ​​of other cultures.
    To create positive relationships with people of other cultures and be able to face 'cultural tensions'.

Participants will have the change to be informed and trained:

    on the knowledge, experience and skills that the modern-Baker Confectioner should have  in order to meet the modern demands of the labor market in their sector
    on Health and safety topics in their workplaces
    about Job prospects opened in a modern Confectionery market
    on how to prepare and offer in their enterprises traditional and modern bakery and pastry French products
