ICON-INSTITUT GmbH has been shortlisted for the project « Promotion of Technical and Vocational Education and Training ». The project is divided into two components:
Component 1: Transformation of two existing technical schools into Centres of Competence for renewable energy and energy efficiency, and
Component 2: Upgrading of existing technical schools in Greater Cairo, Alexandria and Gharbyia.
In both components, technical schools will be rehabilitated and expanded, if needed. This includes the rehabilitation of classrooms, workshops, sanitary facilities and administrative offices, as well as the redesign of the school premises.
