Annual Erasmus + Information Days launched in Armenia

ArmInfo. The annual Erasmus + Information Days launched in Armenia.

As RA Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sports Arayik  Harutyunyan noted during a formal event on November 7, the program  has been implemented in Armenia for 24 years. Speaking about the  importance of Erasmus +, he emphasized that it was aimed, among other  things, at strengthening the capacities of universities, which is  especially important given the upcoming reforms in the higher  education system.

Harutyunyan informed about the creation of wide opportunities for the  implementation of joint educational programs, pointing out the  planned changes, including the issue of financing universities.  According to him, the Erasmus + program can significantly contribute  to the implementation of these reforms.

For her part, EU Ambassador to Armenia Andrea Wiktorin noted the  importance of supporting youth, since it is they who are responsible  for the future of the country. Thus, the creation of appropriate  conditions for the further continuation of the study of young people  abroad is directly related to their work for the benefit of the  development of their native country. "We are pursuing a policy of  dialogue, giving Armenia the opportunity to participate in various  programs, and the Government of the country is actively involved in  this process," she noted.

The Erasmus + program of the European Union aims to support  cooperation in education, vocational training and sports. Every year,  the European Commission announces a competition for universities and  organizations in 184 countries that can submit their applications and  programs. This year, Erasmus + will also provide financial resources,  including to the partner countries of the program, one of which is  Armenia.

As part of the Erasmus + Information Days, a series of events are  held to alert about available grants and opportunities for  collaboration
