The aim of the project is to improve the quality of postgraduate studies in the field of Environment Protection in Georgian and Armenian Universities on the basis of best European practice.
Extending the Bologna principles to this area of education reflects the trends and needs of European and global economies as well as HE education priorities of Georgia and Armenia.
The EU association process implies compliance of Georgian and Armenian agricultural and touristic sectors with European standards. This puts on the agenda environmental and food safety and quality assurance, as well as the training of relevant highly qualified specialists.
The focus of the MENVIPRO project is on establishment of intensive inter-University education and research activities aimed at student and collaborative projects. The project supports creation of powerful laboratory facilities as well as modernized MSc curricula and modules. The project consortium combines credible partners with diverse and mutually complementary expertise from the region of South Caucasus, as well as Italy, Portugal, and Germany.
Within the framework of the MENVIPRO project, the University of Georgia plans to set up an experimental electronic infrastructure, which will enable students and researchers to carry out environmental training and engineering projects.
