16 December 2013

The founding meeting of the EU Alumni network was held inthe EU Centre on 9 November. The purpose of the EU Alumni network is to unite former participants of European educational programmes. It will promote the involvement of young people in formal and non-formal education programmes, providing them with information, support and guidance. The network will then spread information on EU educational programmes by using education as a powerful communication tool.
‘Real success stories of the graduates of EU educational programmes will bring about significantly greater interest among students,’ said the Deputy Head of Operations of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Jose Maria Medina Navaro, who went on to say that education was one of the most effective ways to align Armenia closer with Europe and that the EU was ready to support students in their endeavours: ‘Education has been and will remain an important sector of EU-Armenia cooperation within the framework of the Eastern Partnership’.
Navaro indicated that as a student he had participated in EU educational programmes and that this involvement had helped him in his professional life. He encouraged students to get involvedand share best practices in order to gain the maximum benefit and actively contribute to Armenia’s development.
The Vice-President of the Armenian National Student Association and a full member of the European Students’ Union since 2012, Sargis Asatriants, noted that the members of association had participated and continue to participate in European educational programmes, and that they must imbue European values into education in Armenia.
