Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania will host an information event on 24-25 October, which will enable the European Commission to present in detail how the international dimension of the higher education part of Erasmus+ will work.
Erasmus+, the EU’s new programme for education, training, sport and youth, will provide more opportunities for students and staff in Eastern Partnership countries to study or train in the European Union – and vice versa.
Teaching staff and managers from the main higher education institutions in the region will also receive a briefing on the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions, which funds research fellowships.
The event brings together around 150 government officials, higher education staff, academic representatives and students’ organisations from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine and EU Member States. The conference will also be an opportunity to take stock of the current Tempus and Erasmus Mundus programmes.
