Kakemono ePrep 2010
Kakemono of the Seminar

The theme Sustainable Education gathers several concepts. A Sustainable Education organisation offers :

  • an international and a social open access for all,
  • an exemplary way of operating, especially in term of information and communication technlologies for education (ICTE),
  • a support to students when they are in the organisation or after they have left it.

This 9th ePrep event, which brought together 89 participants of 8 countries (Cambodia, Canada, Côte d'Ivoire, France, Lebanon, Senegal, Switzerland, Tunisia), was the opportunity to think about and to illustrate these concepts.

This seminar was also the occasion to officially launch the SILLAGES initiative - resources for enhancing social and international access to the "granes écoles" - which results of the development, under the guidance of Ecole polytechnique / ParisTech, ESSEC and ePrep, of two projects which have been developed in their exploratory phase by ePrep since October 2006 :

The 2010 SILLAGES award ceremony took place during the closing session: twelve authors, in economics, literature and sciences, were given a medal of the French Senate.
