Interteam and ARPU~UP jointly collaborated with consultancy firm Agora Partners whose personnel were instrumental in managing the ELAICH project to increase awareness of the project as well as to ensure that the results of the project would be widely disseminated to its target audiences. These audiences included high school managers, educators in science, arts and history, representatives of local, regional and national government institutions and NGOs related to cultural heritage conservation.
The services included:
• Content Services – providing content for ELAICH’s website, blog and social media venues
• Public Relations – promoting ELAICH activities in the international press and receiving wide coverage in newspapers and professional publications in Western Europe and Mediterranean countries
• Social Media Marketing – operating and building an online presence for ELAICH on leading social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube
• Project Blog – creating, operating and maintaining a project blog
“The expertise and devotion of Interteam and ARPU~UP helped us in getting substantial media coverage and public exposure and meeting the dissemination and exploitation requirements of the EU,” said Simon van Dam, senior partner of Agora Partners and acting ELAICH project manager.
“The project illustrates the advantage of combining Agora’s proven managerial qualifications with our partners’ unique skills in the field of corporate communication and media relations to achieve outstanding exposure results,” he added.
“Our partnership with ELAICH’s exciting project in general and Agora in particular was a great opportunity to demonstrate our proven abilities in providing dissemination and exploitation services to EU-funded projects,” said Dan Gerstenfeld, CEO of Interteam Content Services.
“We are very glad that we were able to help in generating the public awareness ELAICH deserved and look forward to cooperating with our partners in future EU-funded projects. We are also pleased that some of the dissemination channels that we provided have been adopted by the EU agencies themselves for their own use,” added Gerstenfeld.
“ELAICH’s ambitious plan to bring together youth from different countries such as Israel, Jordan, Malta, Italy, Greece and Turkey to jointly cooperate on cultural heritage projects was a special challenge for us,” said Boaz Babai, ARPU~UP’s founder and CEO. “I am happy that we succeeded, through this joint effort, in raising awareness of the importance of cross-border projects bridging cultural gaps between youth to protect cultural historical and environmental values.”
The ELAICH Project was an EU-funded project which was part of the Euromed Heritage 4 Programme aimed at contributing to raising awareness of cultural heritage by providing modern and innovative tools for teaching its essence to the general public, especially the youth.
The ELAICH consortium was a multi-disciplinary team comprised of specialists in various areas of cultural heritage conservation and education from five highly rated universities, led by the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
