Erasmus+ CONTAN is a project 100% financed by the European Union to strengthen the partnership of European and Tanzanian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Natural Science Museums, with the aim of building a network and improve the HEIs offer, both by delivering modern training approaches through e‐learning courses and upgrading of formal curricula, and by boosting skills of students as well as updating the capacity of professionals.
After weeks of hard work and meetings, the project Partners, coordinated by the University of Florence, are now pleased to announce the launching of the new website, www.erasmuscontan.eu. Designed with a clean, responsive and modern look to grant easy access to essential information, the website is user-friendly and helps explore the project objectives, targets, actions, and results, as well as some relevant matters on biodiversity and education.
“The main project goal is to outline the benefits of an international commitment to ensure green growth through conservation and sustainable use of natural resources” said Dr. Claudia Barelli, Research Fellow of the Department of Biology of the University of Florence and CONTAN Project Manager, “in particular through shaping a number of future competitive biodiversity experts for relevant professional positions, as well as increasing research, scientific production and biodiversity programmes that adopt international standards.”
The website will support these goals and activities and provide regularly updated information on biodiversity monitoring and conservation, as well as blog entries on field researches and event highlights in the “NEWS” section.
To keep up to date with the latest project advancements and topics, CONTAN Partners are pleased to invite all interested visitors, students and professionals to explore the new website, sign up for the project newsletter and join the community on its social accounts and channels!
