CPIP, the Romanian partner, is still using content in local INFO days, also in the EU with networking events. This handbook comprised not more than 60 pages, planned as not more than 30 pages at the stage of application, (long enough to give the reader all the necessary information and short enough to not get the reader bored), and it is planned as each partner printed 25 copies in their national language, together with extra 10 which will be printed in English language by BOSEV, leading to a total of 160 handbooks which will reach the project’s beneficiaries. The total number of printed national copies already reached more than 500 copies at the moment because of the end-users interested in content printed in public promotional activities. The handbook has an attractive and colorful design, making sure to contain only relevant and “to the point” information, becoming a very useful marketing tool, which will “speak”.
