The ERASMUS+ CBHE T-GREEN “Transforming Graduate Education for Green and Sustainable Future” project, co-funded by the European Union, was launched on April 4, 2023.
The project lasts for 3 years, is coordinated by the National University of Architecture and Construction of Armenia (NUACA) and co-coordinated by the Eurasia International University (EIU).
The T-GREEN project addresses the need of reforming graduate education in Armenian in support of the Green Deal and enabling the shift from traditional to future-oriented, green, and interdisciplinary curricula, as well as by promoting student mobility and designing collaborative degree implementation schemes.
Capacity building of national and institutional administrators, decision and policymakers, educators, researchers, and students to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals targeting environmental issues into policies and educational content will be the core of the project. Another central objective of the project is to create a network involving national authorities, HEIs and other stakeholders to engage in horizontal and vertical collaboration: to this end the national and institutional regulations fostering joint, double or multiple degree implementation and promoting student mobility, credit transfer and recognition will be enhanced and piloted.
Strategic revision of the national list of professions enabling the licensing of new, future-oriented, interdisciplinary, and green master’s degree programs, as well as collaboration structures developed will contribute to further initiatives also beyond the project timeframe.
Armenian participants of the project are: RA Ministry of Education, Science, Culture, Sports, National Quality Assurance Center, Yerevan State University, Eurasia International University, State University of Economics of Armenia, French University of Armenia, National Polytechnic University of Armenia, Armenian National Agrarian University, Gavar State University, Goris State University, “Erasmus Students’ Network Yerevan” NGO and “Bridge of Hope” NGO.
