ELECTRA

Enhancing Learning in ENPI Countries through Clean technologies and Research related Activities

Project purposes

The Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project Electra fosters the cooperation between European and ENPI countries by promoting intercultural understanding through research with a strong focus on environmental, energy and sustainable development issues.

The project will strengthen educational, cultural, scientific and technological links between partners by implementing EHEA (European Higher Education Area) tools and mechanisms that promote transparency and recognition of studies abroad. Special attention is given to the roles of associated partners including research centers, ministries of education, association of universities in both ENPI and Europe, quality assurance agencies and environmental agencies in third countries.

In addition to the first level objective of organizing 248 mobilities, the project focusses on second level objectives like:

  • Promotion of the knowledge-based triangle science-enterprise-university by targeting
    applied research in the PhD and Post-Doc proposals.
  • Integration of Bologna educational system and Lisbon Strategy in Central Asian partner
    institutions with support of Ministries of Education.
  • Contribution to the development of qualification frameworks in priority field areas.
