In the context of the project, an electronic communication platform has been established in October 2012 to ensure effective communication between all project members and to facilitate exchange on equal opportunity measures.
Ten representatives of the Egyptian partner universities and the Ministry of Higher Education travelled to Berlin to participate in a training on the Wiki system of Freie Universität Berlin. Experts of the Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS) of Freie Universität Berlin conducted the training. Subsequent to the technical instruction, the participants developed a concept for the online platform in cooperation with the German project coordinators.
Since then, 53 Egyptian and German project members have registered in the Wiki platform. The platform contributes to a more efficient organization of joint events, it facilitates exchange of knowledge and experiences between the partner universities, and helps maintain discussions about equal opportunity issues over spatial distances.
In order to train a higher number of project members in the Wiki system and to further develop the concept of the platform, workshops at Sohag and South Valley University were held in March 2013. Similar workshops in Cairo and Alexandria will follow.
