filling the gaps and strengthen the links between education, entrepreneurship and innovation, which is based on strategic priorities of developing the country’s education, science and agriculture.

The project will

  • implement new curricula and master programs to promote the modernization of the Armenian study programmes in the agri-food and bio products science and technology
  • set the basis for joint/double study programmes,
  • set a framework to developing start-ups through the joint efforts of Armenian and EU students,
  • set a mobility framework for students,
  • develop a multidisciplinary network and promoting effective collaboration between local and European universites engaging university departments, laboratories, enterprise
  • modernize the research labs with basic and advanced equipment and facilities tailored to the needs of the Armenian Master Program, based on needs assessment
