Edition 179 - March 2016

Last, but by no means least – Indian Network of European Higher Education Experts (EHEEs)

The month of March brought the launch of the last in a series of five networks of European Higher Education Experts (EHEEs) by ACA. The Indian network of EHEEs, launched via a seminar organised in New Delhi on 7-8 March 2016, now completes the picture of networks established since mi-December 2015 in Russia, Brazil, China and South Africa. The New Delhi seminar was kindly hosted by the Delegation of the European Union to India, together with whom ACA organised the event and identified the experts, with the support of the Campus France main Office in India as well.

The event brought together extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic experts from several universities around the country, namely the Jawaharlal Nehru University, Savitribai Phule Pune University (formerly Pune University), Anna University, NUEPA, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, staff of the EU Delegation and other European colleagues, to discuss about promoting educational and study abroad opportunities in Europe, or more specifically in Erasmus+ programme countries. The programme featured also presentations on study opportunities in Estonia, France and the Netherlands.

ACA is very grateful for the enthusiastic participation of the delegates in this event and is looking forward to further work and exchanges with and within the networks over the task of promoting Europe as a study destination. 

Background note: These activities are organised in the framework of the project “Enhancing the attractiveness of European higher education in the world” – or “Study in Europe” in short, an initiative funded by the European Commission. The “Study in Europe” project will run until the end of 2017, and is to contribute to strengthening the profile of the entire range of European higher education on the world stage, and of EU-funded opportunities, and make them more visible and accessible to mobile learners and academics. The project is implemented on behalf of the European Commission by a consortium of international partners formed of the British Council (Coordinator), ACA, DAAD, EP-Nuffic, Campus France and the Archimedes Foundation.
