NaUKMA Hosts EU Commissioner at First Western-Model PhD Diploma Ceremony in Ukraine

Androulla Vassiliou, EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth visited National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy on December 5, to meet students, staff and alumni at the opening of the conference, "Tempus and Erasmus Mundus: Opportunities for the Eastern Partnership". Her speech on the topic, "Cooperation and Mobility Opportunities for Individuals and Institutions between the Ukraine and the European Union" was followed by a question and answer session.

Ms. Vassiliou expressed her strong support for the integration of Ukraine’s educational sector into the European model. “In the firm belief that investment in education, training and creativity is essential for the prosperity of future generations… the European Commission adopted …the programs, Erasmus for All and Creative Europe. These programs are the right tools to help us respond to the challenges we face and I am confident that they will deliver the results we all want to see," said Ms. Vassiliou.

EU Commissioner A. Vassiliou met with faculty and students who are engaged in the implementation of European and other international projects. Tempus, Erasmus Mundus and Jean Monnet are the European Union's key programs for international cooperation in higher education in Ukraine. NaUKMA has been the recipient of 15 grants implementing such programs.
