Europe finances UGA international projects
December 18, 2017 - February 28, 2018
The UGA is delighted to report a wide variety of successful projects undertaken with our international partners in 2017. Many of these have been funded by the European Union as part of its regular calls for applications. We are proud to contribute to the global community of knowledge and higher education.
The international Projects and Partnerships team provides information and assistance to UGA staff wishing to apply for funding or create a new international project. In 2017, the university's academic departments have submitted 14 applications to calls that are part of the European Eramus+ program (E+), and six of these have be granted funding. Congratulations to the successful project teams, and a warm thanks to all the UGA staff for their creativity and dedication in creating new projects and initiatives!
