categories include the following:

of National Education and Religious Affairs and the implementing
agencies responsible for executing the projects tendered by the
Managing Authority (MA).
Entities Benefiting Directly or Indirectly
(by a project executed by the final beneficiaries): the
specific population segments targeted by the O.P. "Education"
with its projects implemented to meet their needs. Educators, students,
their parents, students of Vocational Training Institutes, the academic
community as a whole, adults undergoing vocational training, etc.
Contractors: Enterprises or natural

of projects tendered by the Final Beneficiaries.

implementation process for a variety of reasons. These can include
the Ministry of Finance and other ministries, Managing Authorities
of other O.P. (Operational Programmes), Organisations and Entities
from the European Union, etc.
The Wider Public: those citizens
interested in educational and initial vocational training themes.
This category includes the press and mass media in general that
in effect operate as an intermediary toward the wider public.
The website has been designed in such a way as to
satisfy user needs of all categories to a large extent. More specifically:
Final Beneficiaries have the opportunity
to find information regarding the OP, especially in reference to
the policies it supports, the
management procedures, the
implementation’s legal framework, the
allocation of resources, the
implementation progress, evaluation processes
and, of course, information on the calls
for proposal. More specifically for the calls for proposal,
support is provided with model
plan templates and detailed guidelines. Concurrently, constant
updates regarding the latest

A large amount of information is provided to the
Beneficiaries concerning the results of actions
being implemented in the O.P. "Education" framework. The
data show the actions’ effect on the various educational levels
as well as on initial vocational training schemes. Specifically,
educators and students can search for information regarding actions
that fund school laboratories, libraries, educational software,
model studies programmes. Additionally, educators can seek actions
that finance training programmes and mobility. On the other hand,
members of the academic community are informed of funded projects
that focus on improving educational services offered by the Universities
and Technical Institutes of our country which are enhanced by investments
in infrastructure and equipment, innovative educational programmes
at the undergraduate and post-graduate level, programmes focusing
