Description

The aim of this Erasmus Mundus project was to promote European higher education for students and scholars from the Caucasus and Central Asia, so as to raise the visibility and attractiveness of European universities in those countries and to enable students and scholars to make informed choices on destinations for study and research abroad. Four training seminars for multipliers from OSI Educational Advising Centres were held in Baku, Tbilisi, Almaty and Vilnius. The seminars contributed to increased information and awareness of education reforms and opportunities in Europe.

The project was led by the Open Society Institute in Budapest. ACA organised  the first training seminar in Tbilisi, and participated in the steering group.
