According to the population figure for Romania, the MIREIA mapping exercise had established a minimum target of having 102 eInclusion actors to fill the survey. But in no time, and with the help of national partners, the Romanian MIREIA branch EOS Foundation managed to supersede the minimum target with almost 50%!
Educating for an Open Society's (EOS) main goal is to facilitate an open society and sustainable development in Romania, by enabling members of communities to acquire social and economic entrepreneurial abilities through the application of ICT.
Our organisation has two main activities: introduction and development of ICT training programs for teachers from the pre-university sector and developing programs for the broader community, with focus on using the new technologies.
Before starting to promote the MIREIA survey, we considered it very important to develop a document in Romanian that explains very well what is the purpose of the survey, which are the organisations that can complete the survey and why it is important to take part in this research. This document was sent through mailing lists that contain the contact persons of all our national partners that provide ICT services.
In order to move forward quickly and spread the information through as much communication channels as possible, the key persons and representatives of all the big networks of Romanian centres were contacted by phone: the National Association of Public Libraries in Romania, the Ministry of Communication, and also the national e-centre network established by EOS.
The partners welcomed this opportunity and in a very short time the information easily reached the librarians, the coordinators of the Public Internet Access Points and the e-centre managers. In this way, more than 500 Public Internet Access Points and 1000 libraries were contacted.
The information was also posted on the EOS website and Facebook page, but also a short article was written on the ANBPR portal, in order to make the information available for all the organisations that qualify for completing this survey.
We hope that our dissemination practice will be useful for all MIREIA partners!
