Yale: Extends Partnership with CARDET

The Yale School of Public Health and the Center for the Advancement of Research & Development in Educational Technology (CARDET) have extended an ongoing partnership in the fields of research, education and development. The two institutions marked the renewal with the signing of a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) by Dean Sten H. Vermund and CARDET’s executive director, Dr. Charalambos Vrasidas.

CARDET is an international, non-profit, research and development organization based in Cyprus, with partners from around the world. It is one of the leading institutions in the Euro-Mediterranean region for research and development with a large portfolio of initiatives in more than 40 countries.

The MoU establishes the Yale School of Public Health and CARDET will continue a mutually beneficial collaboration that was created in 2015 and involves partnerships in education and exchange of expertise, best practices and bilateral support.

The renewed agreement provides the framework for the pursuit, planning and undertaking of joint actions and projects in the Euro-Mediterranean region and beyond. From 2015 to 2018, the two institutions collaborated successfully on several initiatives including the offering of the Open Education Series, hosting internships for Yale students in Cyprus, delivering online and face-to-face courses, publishing of a book on Principles and Practice of Multi-Site Randomized Controlled Trials in the Phase III Setting, and co-organized an international conference on health education and health reform.
