Expected results:

Short term impacts:

  • Enhancing the Life-Long-Learning (LLL) concept in different EG regions and in partner universities
  • Developing LLL Framework
  • Supporting LLL infrastructure in EG universities
  • Developing LLL training


Long term impacts:

  • Stimulating LLL will improve the knowledge base of the country’s engineers and the capacity for innovation and competition
  • A well-coordinated effort between industry, academia, professional societies, and policymakers to develop a national framework for LLL for engineers
  • Enhancing the employability of professional engineers
  • Injecting creative solutions in the engineering market through sustainable Development, Innovation and different Managerial & soft skills
