On 28 February the Erasmus+ Promotion Day was held at the EU Centre. The event was organised to inform Armenian youth about the details of “Erasmus+”, a programme funded by the European Commission. It is a new programme launched in January 2014 which combines all the EU’s current schemes for education, training, youth and sport.
Team Leader of the EU Centre Ehtel Halliste greeted potential programme alumni: ‘Erasmus+ gives you the opportunity to go and see how other people live, experience different ways of learning, and make new friends. I wish that you are all able to go to Europe, study there, but then come back to Armenia and use your knowledge for the prosperity of your country’.
During the information session, a general overview of the programme was provided by the Coordinator of the National Tempus Office to Armenia, Lana Karlova, who presented new opportunities for students and the 2014-2020 “Erasmus+” programme.
“Erasmus+” is aimed at boosting skills and employability, as well as modernising education, training and youth work. The 7-year programme will be financed by the EU with a budget of €14.7 billion. This represents a 40% increase on current spending levels and shows the EU’s commitment to investing in education and employment.
