Date: 24-25 October 2019

Venue: Tirana International Hotel, Tiranë, Shqipëri

On 24-25 October, at Tirana International Hotel was organized the “Erasmus+ Contact Seminar with the Western Balkans”. The seminar gathered around 200 representatives from higher education institutions from all 34 Erasmus+ programme countries, as well as from the Western Balkan partner countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Kosovo*). The aim was to increase the number of applications within the region under the next Erasmus+ call for proposals by offering concrete networking opportunities.

The contact seminar covered all international actions of the Erasmus+ programme, with a focus on International Credit Mobility and capacity building in higher education. As for previous editions, the event included networking sessions and a series of workshops addressing issues, such as the mutual recognition of qualifications and learning periods abroad, Erasmus+ application forms, selection and support for participants.

During the second day of the activity, Albanian HEIs were trained and met different HEIS from the programme countries and Western Balkans.
