International Credit Mobility (ICM) Action of Erasmus+ Programme provides opportunities for STUDENTS as well as STAFF of higher education institutions situated in Partner countries to undertake a learning and/or professional experience in another country. A Higher Education Institution (HEI) located in Armenia, which is a Partner Country, can send its students or staff to a Programme Country HEI, and vice versa. Programme Countries are 28 Member States of the European Union (EU) and 5 Non EU Programme Countries (former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey).

Erasmus Mundus – Integration of Neighbouring EasterN Regions through Cooperation in Higher Education (EMINENCE)

The EMINENCE project is funded by the European Commission in the framework of Erasmus Mundus programme. The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance the quality of higher education and promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through mobility and academic cooperation.

The idea and the acronym of the EMINENCE partnership brings a message that this project targets at “eminence”, understood as distinction, renown, reputation and importance of future project beneficiaries– students and scholars educated abroad who on their return home will contribute to the development of Eastern Partnership countries and societies aspiring to reach European standards.

The EMINENCE project operates within so called Action2: Partnerships with Third Country higher education institutions and scholarships for mobility, which gives support to:

  • higher education institutions that wish to set-up inter-institutional cooperation partnerships between universities from Europe and targeted Third-Countries;
  • individual students, researchers and university staff who wish to spend a study / research / teaching period in one of the universities included in partnerships.

The targeted Third-Countries in EMINENCE project are Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia (these Eastern neighbouring countries belong to the initiative called Eastern Partnership- EaP, benefiting also in other actions within and beyond higher education in the scope of the European Union’s external relations).

 Main characteristics of EMINENCE project

 The objectives of EMINENCE Partnership are:

  • to develop abroad the qualifications of most motivated and talented students and staff and give them international experience , increasing this way their employability at labour market;
  • to promote mobility of Eastern Partnership countries’ students from vulnerable groups in order to obtain qualifications and experience in the EU partner universities;
  • to contribute towards the development of human resources and the international co-operation capacity of higher education institutions in Eastern neighbouring countries through individual mobility, which should not bring only individual benefits but also effect home university and society as a whole;
  • to enhance visibility of EU higher education in Eastern neighbouring countries in general and to facilitate integration into the European Higher Education Area and Bologna process of involved HEIs in this region in particular (in accordance with EU external policy objectives namely with the goals of Platform IV people-to-people cooperation of the Eastern Partnership and the goals of the European Neighbourhood Policy);
  • to create and strengthen lasting links and collaborations between participating HEIs from EU and Eastern neighbouring countries’ that will result in actions and activities after the funding period;
  • to contribute to the mutual enrichment of both EU and Eastern neighbouring countries’ societies by exchange of people, culture, knowledge and ideas.
