ENISA hosted a handover ceremony for the donation of electronic equipment, which is still operational but obsolete for the Agency’s needs, to public bodies and schools in Heraklion Crete, on Wednesday 17th December, 2014. The equipment was donated to law enforcement bodies, schools, and municipalities.
The activity is part of the Agency’s ongoing collaboration with the local authorities and bodies, in an effort to contribute through the donation of useful and operational equipment, covering existing educational or administrative needs. In addition, in a number of occasions it facilitates the educational process and makes ICT available to students.
ENISA’s Executive Director Udo Helmbrecht stated: “We are in close collaboration with the local authorities and our stakeholders and we are aware of their particular needs. This gesture is the minimum contribution from our part, aiming to assist with current needs in schools and bodies”.
The Head of Administration and Support Paulo Empadinhas said: “As part of the local community we are well aware of current needs, and we wish to contribute through this donation in a tangible and meaningful way. We can all make a difference, and each and every one of us, and we can each offer through our own way and means. We are happy that with this action, the equipment will become useful again.”
